Can't wait endlessly for Ram temple construction: Praveen Togadia
Kanpur: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Praveen Togadia has said that construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya will be done by enacting a law in parliament and Hindus cannot wait endlessly.
Togadia, the international president of the VHP who arrived in Kanpur late Wednesday night, said 100 crore Hindus in the country cannot wait endlessly for the Supreme Court to give its verdict on the contentious matter.
"This is an issue which is very close to the hearts of millions of Hindus and we cannot wait for the apex court to find time and take a call on the matter," the firebrand leader said.
Togadia is in the city to take part in a Hindu Sammelan, slated for Thursday.
He added that the sentiments of the majority Hindus will ensure that a law was made by parliament for the construction of a 'bhavya' (grand) temple at Ayodhya.
When asked to comment on the performance of the Narendra Modi government, he refused to make any statement and said the VHP has nothing to do with the central government and that the organisation was doing its own work, based on its principles and agenda.
