New Delhi:30/1:(odiannews):The decision of Centre to seek the permission of Supreme Court to restore the excess 67-acre land around the disputed Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid site to the original owners is being seen as a last-ditch effort by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to placate the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) cadre and Hindus saints who have intensified their campaign for construction of the temple. On Tuesday, the Centre said it had acquired 67 acres of land, including the 2.77-acre disputed Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid site, and sought permission of the Supreme Court to return the excess land to its original owners. “This step is an attempt to assuage the anger of the cadre who will play a key role in drumming up support for the party as it seeks re-election. The cadre was not mollified by the claims of government that they are committed to the cause and it was during their tenure that the first temple was constructed in United Arab Emirates (UAE), a Muslim country,” said a senior functionary on condition of anonymity.
