In an effort to mount pressure on Narendra Modi’s government to bring a legislation facilitating construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya, in the upcoming winter session of the Parliament, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) today launched its 9-day `Sankalp Rath Yatra’, in New Delhi.
The mega ‘rath yatra’ comes in the backdrop of various events organised by Hindu organisations, including Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Shiv Sena in the temple town along with Nagpur and Bengaluru, last week.
The ‘Sankalp Rath Yatra’ will culminate on December 9 at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, where VHP is scheduled to hold a mega rally – ‘Dharma Sabha’ – demanding an ordinance for construction of Ram Mandir in the holy town in Uttar Pradesh.
On a similar note, RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Tuesday demanded an ordinance or a law to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya, at the earliest. He criticised the three-judge bench of the Supreme Court which had on October 29 adjourned hearing in the matter, alleging it of ‘delaying’ justice and ‘disrespecting’ the Constitution and ‘hurting’ Hindu sentiments.
“I haven’t taken names because 125 crore Indians know their names. The three-judge bench. they delayed, they denied, they disrespected. They have disrespected the Constitution and fundamental rights,” he added.
RSS is expecting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bound to take some initiative in this direction, after December 11, when the model code for five assembly elections ends. Already indications were given that Modi will be holding an high-level meeting in this regard, after December 11.
