The exercise of construction of Ram temple has intensified. On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held an important review meeting on this. Apart from UP CM Yogi Adityanath, many big officials attended this meeting. BJP’s struggle for Ram temple started about 21 years ago when Lal Krishna Advani started ‘Rath Yatra’ from Somnath temple in 1990. Meanwhile, he was arrested in Bihar.
In 1990, Lalu Prasad Yadav had already become the Chief Minister of Bihar and he had already ordered the senior officers to arrest Advani, but had advised the top officials not to do so. Officials said that this could worsen the atmosphere in the state. While Lalu was adamant on his point. He had already informed the then Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed about this. Lalu Yadav has mentioned this incident in his autobiography ‘Gopalganj to Raisina: My Political Journey’.
Lalu made a phone call as a journalist: On the other hand, Lal Krishna Advani had entered Bihar with the Rath Yatra, but something else was going on in Lalu Prasad Yadav’s mind. He wanted to stop Advani’s chariot at any cost. Lal Krishna Advani was staying at the Circuit House in Samastipur, Bihar. Lalu instructed the officers not to go anywhere. Lalu knew that arresting LK Advani could worsen the situation.
VP Singh government fell after Advani’s arrest: Lalu Prasad Yadav called at Circuit House at 2 o’clock in the night. He made this call as a journalist. Actually he wanted to know who is present with Advani during this time. Advani’s aide told Lalu that he is currently taking rest and his supporters have left. Lalu did not let this opportunity pass and Advani was immediately arrested. After the arrest of Advani, the politics of the Center changed completely. After the arrest of Advani, the VP Singh government at the Center fell.
