VHP to meet PM Modi for speedy solution to Ram Janmbhoomi dispute

ram-janmabhoomi_1Lucknow: After organising ‘Ram Mahotsava’ to rally support for buiding Ram temple at Ayodhya, seers of Vishwa Hindu Parishad are planning to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to seek speedy resolution of the Ram Janmbhoomi dispute.

“A two-day meeting of Kendriya Margdarshak Mandal will be held at Haridwar from May 25, in which the date to meet the Prime Minister will be decided,” VHP spokesman Sharad Sharma told PTI.

The meeting of the seers would also be attended by top VHP leaders, including Ashok Singhal and Praveen Togadia.

“During the meeting with the PM, a memorandum could be submitted suggesting how the issue could be resolved,” he said.

“We have been demanding since long that the issue must be resolved. Chairman of Ram Janmbhoomi Nyaas Mahant Nrityagopl Das had been saying that a special bench of the Supreme Court should be constituted. The objective is that the PM should take an initiative in this direction,” Sharma said.

He said the issue of an early solution would definitely be raised.

“A delegation of seers had met President Pranab Mukherjee last year and demanded that directives of Shanker Dayal Sharma should be implemented, but nothing has happened so far,” he claimed.

The VHP spokesman said the then President had asked the Supreme Court to ensure that the matter be resolved soon following which the apex court directed the HC and excavation work started in Ayodhya.

Sharma said during the meeting at Haridwar, the country-wide ‘Hindu Sammelans’ (meets) held since August last year would be reviwed.

“Secondly, discussions will be held on Panchvati campaign in June-July during which trees will be planted in every village,” he said.

On the lines of the mythological “Panchvati” garden mentioned in Ramayana, VHP has decided to plant five trees in every village in the country and gift “Tulsi” saplings, considered sacred among Hindus, to every household of the community.

Sharma said the seers would discuss the “so called” effort for consensus on Ram Janmabhoomi issue.

“There are a number of persons, who are neither party in the case nor they were active during the movement, but they are talking about consensus,” he said, adding it was just an attempt to mislead the society.

“It’s just an attempt to mislead the society that they will resolve the issue. When you are not a party in the case and you were not active in the movement on what basis are you making such claims, who gave the right. The issue is sub-judice,” he said.

Earlier, in a bid to mobilise Hindu society for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, VHP celebrated Ram Mahotsava between March 22 to April 5.
