How do you plan to deal with the Ram Janmbhoomi issue?
I am committed to allow the construction of the temple at Ayodhya. I declared this at Ayodhya on July 13, in the presence of a number of people present there, including some senior leaders of BJP.
How can you succeed in your effort where the previous Governments have failed?
The previous Governments were not sincere. In fact, they did not want the construction of Ram Temple. Their approach was negative. They were creating all sorts of hurdles in the way. My-Government will clear the way for VHP to construct the temple.
Do you intend to acquire the land for this purpose?
All steps necessary for this purpose will be taken. I have already talked to senior BJP leaders in this regard.
I have also appealed to Muslim leaders of the State to support the Government for this cause. Their response is positive. I am confident; a way will be found, keeping in view the sentiments of all concerned.

Do you propose to take any action against guilty officers in respect of atrocities against Karsevaks?
The inquiry commission set up by the previous Government was only an eyewash. A new commission will be set up to enquire into the questions as to what led to the tragic events of October 30 and November 2. Suitable actions will be taken against the guilty officers who exceeded their jurisdiction in committing atrocities on the innocent people.
The commission will also enquire into the riots which broke out in UP after these events.
