Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, on Tuesday said that ''bhoomi pujan'' should become an occasion for national unity and brotherhood.
In a tweet earlier on Tuesday, Mr Vadra shared an image which read, "The "bhoomi pujan" of the Ram Lalla's temple should become an occasion for national unity, brotherhood and cultural harmony."
