New Delhi: The Ayodhya movement has given many BJP leaders an identity in the politics of the country, but Kalyan Singh gave the biggest sacrifice for the Ram temple. The only leader of BJP, who sacrificed his power after the demolition of Babri in Ayodhya on 6 December 1992. Not lose only government for Ram temple, but they are the only people who get punishment in this case.
Let us tell you that Kalyan Singh was born on January 5, 1932 in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. Kalyan Singh, who was the big leader of BJP, is currently the Governor of Rajasthan. He was one of the biggest faces of Ram temple movement. He was a pro-Hindu and intense speaker.
When Mulayam Singh Yadav was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on October 30, 1990, he ordered to shot the karsevaks. The administration was adopting a tough attitude with the karsevaks. In such a way, BJP forward Kalyan Singh to fight him. Kalyan Singh was the second BJP leader after Atal Bihari Bajpai in BJP, people were desperate to listen to whose speeches. Kalyan Singh used to speak in extreme heat.
In one year, Kalyan Singh brought BJP to the position that the party formed a government in UP in 1991 on its own. Kalyan Singh became the first Chief Minister of BJP in UP. According to the charge sheet filed in CBI, immediately after becoming Chief Minister, Kalyan Singh accompanied his colleagues to Ayodhya and took oath to build Ram temple.
The Kalyan Singh government had not even passed a year that on December 6, 1992, karsevaks in Ayodhya collapsed the disputed structure. While giving an affidavit in the Supreme Court, he said that as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, he will not allow any damage to the mosque. Despite this, on December 6, 1992, the same administration which used to harshly with the karsevaks in the Mulayam’s period, was watching the incident as mute spectacle.
Babri Masjid was demolished. Kalyan Singh was considered responsible for this. Kalyan Singh resigned from Chief Minister on December 6, 1992 while taking its moral responsibility. But on the second day the Central Government sacked the BJP’s UP government.
Kalyan Singh had said at that time that this government was built in the name of Ram Mandir and its purpose was fulfilled. In such a situation, the government is sacrificed named after the Ram Temple. Kalyan Singh received a one-day punishment for not to protect the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.
Liberhan Commission formed to investigate the demolition of the Babri Masjid gave clean chit to the than Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao, but criticize the Chief Minister Kalyan Singh for his intervention in planning, misuse of power, attracting youth for support, and RSS’ interference in the state government. The CBI has also filed a lawsuit against several leaders including Kalyan Singh.
Let you know that whatever happened in Ayodhya 26 years ago, it was done openly. Done with the hands of Thousands of karsevaks. During the incident, Murli Manohar Joshi, Ashok Singhal, Giriraj Kishore, Vishnu Hari Dalmiya, Vinay Katiyar, Uma Bharti, Sadhvi Ritambhara and LK Advani were present at the stage. It was the responsibility of Kalyan Singh to stop people and save the mosque.
Whatever BJP is today, it is the credit of the Ram temple movement. Along with LK Advani, Kalyan Singh has played an important role for this. This is Ayodhya’s contribution that Narendra Modi is the Prime Minister of the country today. Narendra Modi was his charioteer, when LK Advani had taken a rath yatra to Somnath from Ayodhya.
