“I am confident that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will fulfil his promise as well as his party’s resolution for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and that he will immediately prepare a Central legislation in Parliament to this effect,” the VHP international working president told reporters.
He was here to participate in a meeting of VHP volunteers.
“Somnath temple (in Gujarat) was built on initiative of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and with the consent of Muslims apart from a court verdict and wishes of the common people and then government,” he said.
He said the BJP had passed a resolution and made a promise for construction of Ram temple way back in 1997.
“The BJP has majority now and I hope Prime Minister will work for it (construction of temple)” he said.
He said VHP and the RSS are not working for strengthening Hindutva. “Hindutva lies in hearts of all Hindus,” he added.
Togadia said his organisation is working to eradicate untouchability.
