Umar Bharti said the cost of the project has gone high and even then river is unclean
Expressing her opinion on Triple Talaq, she said, "Reading Kuran or going to Haj is not a contract but Nikah (marriage) is a contract because in it you find agreement of the girl. For this reason, this is not a matter of religion but of law." she said.
Uma Bharti said construction of grand Ram Mandir is "my aim" and for this she is even ready to sacrifice her life.
She said that the matter is in the Supreme Court which will decide on the issue.
