The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) is organising a massive rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan to build pressure on the Centre ahead of Parliament’s Winter Session to bring a bill for construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
"The 'dharam sansad' - congregation of Hindu priests - at the Ramlila ground will be addressed by RSS' executive head Suresh 'Bhaiyyaji' Joshi. It will be a massive gathering which will change the hearts of all those who are not in favour of bringing the bill for construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhaya," VHP's spokesperson Vinod Bansal said.
VHP general secretary Surendra Jain said that in case the bill does not come in this winter session, the future course of action will be decided at the next 'dharam sansad', which will be held in Allahabad on the sidelines of 'Mahakumbh' on January 31 and February 1.
The Right-wing group had approached the President and governors in earlier phases. In the forthcoming stages, it is going to hold religious rituals and prayers at temples and matths.
It will culminate at Prayag with the “Dharam Sansad” taking place in the presence of priests and saints. They will meet to take stock of things over their demand for Ram temple. The final ‘Dharam Sansad’ in Prayag will be on January 31 and February 1.
Speaking to News18, VHP international working president Alok Kumar said, "The sabha is the most crucial and strategic step for the early construction of Ram Temple. Ahead of the winter session of Parliament, it will be a call to all MPs for legislation on the matter."
Surendra Jain told News18 that Sunday’s rally will create awareness “that if a bill is introduced in Parliament, nobody will have the strength to counter it”.
