The video shows the pledge being administered by Azam Khan of the Muslim Karsevak Manch.

SP spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary criticised Shukla saying that being a public servant, he can not take such a pledge at a public function. CNN news 18 reported that DG Homeguard Surya Kumar Shukla re-ignited the Ram Mandir debate, saying "I pledge to build the Ram temple at the earliest".

Shukla was attending an event organised by Akhil Bharatiya Samagra Vichar Manch at the Lucknow University campus.

Even before the dust could settle over Bareilly district magistrate R Vikkram Singh's Facebook posts, another senior officer has now embarrassed the Yogi Adityanath government. In an unusual tweet, the association put out a video of the pledge and asserted that this wasn't in line with the ethos that the police service stands for.

A video of a top-ranking police official in Uttar Pradesh swearing to make Ram Temple in Ayodhya soon has gone viral, media reports said.

The state home department has sought an explanation from the police officer who is set to retire next year.

The Shia Waqf Board chief also offered Friday prayers at the disputed site in Ayodhya and also met the chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi, Acharya Satyendra Das.

"Shukla is a public servant, and he is not supposed to take such a pledge at a public function", said Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary.

Samajwadi Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary also criticised Shukla saying that being a public servant, he can not take such a pledge at a public function.

Ironically when asked on this score Shukla said that he had done nothing wrong.

"Even the Supreme Court has suggested that a way be found through talks", he said. The court has said it will hold daily hearings from February 8 on petitions challenging a 2010 high court verdict on the Ayodhya title suit.
