NEW DELHI: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to prevail upon party President Amit Shah to convene a meeting of the BJP national executive on implementation of the Hindutva agenda as promised in the 2014 election manifesto.         

In a letter to Modi, he said Shah has failed to reply to his letter on the issue even after four months    

on such a crucial issue "dear to the hearts of all our party workers and Sangh Parivar".

Swamy said the party in particular had made a commitment that Ram temple will be built if it is possible to do so by legal measures.          

In the letter, the former Union Minister also complained about the "poor judgement" of the government's law officers in crucial matters like the deletion of controversial section in the Information Technology (IT) Act, National Judicial Appointments Commission Act and on the issue of criminal defamation.             Swamy said the government took a stand against section 66A of the IT Act which was struck down by the court.

He said the Judicial Appointments Commission as an alternative to the collegium system appears to be an arbitrarily conceived idea.        

"This too has angered collectively the judiciary and in particular the Supreme Court," he said.

Swamy said through a newspaper leak he has learnt that the government will oppose his writ petition seeking to decriminalise the defamation law.    "As in the case of Section 66A of the IT Act, the Supreme Court made disregard to the government of India and could go ahead to quash the said section as unconstitutional," he said.
