Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Sept 15 (ANI): Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee greeted veteran Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament (MP) Subramanian Swamy on his 80th birth anniversary on Sunday.

"Heartiest birthday greetings to Subramanian Swamy Ji. Wishing you a long and healthy life ahead," Banerjee tweeted.

Earlier today, Swamy batted in support of the construction of a temple on the disputed land in Ayodhya by asserting that the fundamental rights of Hindus are above the property rights of Muslims.

The 80-year-old leader has, time and again, advocated for the need to build a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, where a 16th-century Babri Masjid was demolished on December 6, 1992.

"The Fundamental Rights of Hindu are above the property rights of the Muslims. Whenever there is a clash between the two, the Supreme Court always rules in favour of the fundamental rights," Swamy told the media persons on his visit to a temple in Ayodhya on his birthday.

The apex court is conducting a day-to-day hearing into the case pertaining to the ownership of the 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya and is likely to pass a verdict later this year. (ANI)
