Allahabad: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Thursday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "break silence" over the Ayodhya issue, and give "a clear message" that his government was "committed to the construction of temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi".

At a meeting of the VHP's "Kendriya Margadarshak Mandal" close to the holy Sangam here, the Sangh Parivar outfit asked the Prime Minister to "pay a visit to Ayodhya and click a selfie at the Ram Janmabhoomi" to underscore the commitment of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre towards construction of temple at the dispute.

At the meeting, which was attended by a number of VHP office-bearers and Hindu religious leaders, concerns were also raised over "increasing incidence of cow slaughter" and demands made for setting up a national "Gau Seva Aayog" on the pattern of similar bodies that have come up in BJP-ruled states like Gujarat and Haryana.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, senior VHP leader Ram Vilas Vedanti said "it is necessary for Narendra Modi, who enjoys the blessings of the Hindu community, to break his silence over the Ayodhya issue.

"If the ruling BJP is wary of raising this issue in the Parliament on account of its lack of majority in the Rajya Sabha, it must consider the option of convening a special joint session of both houses," he said.
