Jaipur: The debate over the descendants of Lord Sriram during the hearing of the Ayodhya case is yet to come to a standstill. The debate that began with the Raj families of Rajasthan has now intensified in the political corridors as to who is the descendant of Lord Rama. After Diya Kumari, a former princess of Jaipur and Rajya Sabha member from the BJP, Congress spokesperson Satyendra Singh Raghav had also claimed to be a descendant of Ram. Now, Pratap Singh Khachariawas, minister in the Gehlot government of Rajasthan, has also staked his claim in the case.
Talking to media, Khachariawas said that he is a descendant of Lord Sriram. Khachariawas said that the descendants of Lord Sriram are present all over the world and their genealogy can also be removed if required. He said, it will prove that he is a descendant of Lord Sriram.
The BJP has been raising the issue of building a Ram temple from the beginning. Now, Khachariawas, a Kadawar leader of the Rajasthan Congress and minister in Gehlot's cabinet, has also advocated the construction of a grand temple in Ayodhya. He has said that the grand temple of Lord Sriram must be constructed in Ayodhya. It was the Congress party which had moved the Supreme Court to break the Ram Setu saying that Ram is fictional and Ram Setu has nothing to do with him. Now, the Congress leaders should not make a landfall within the party by describing themselves as the descendants of Mr. Ram.
