Former Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Pravin Togadia targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the delay in construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya.

He also accused the BJP of cheating people in the name of Lord Ram and said he would wait till October this year before launching a massive agitation to press for a grand shrine on the ruins of the Babri mosque. Togadia, who has launched International Hindu Parishad, said his workers will fan out across the country to get 10 crore signatures for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. A deadline of October would be set for the Modi government to act on the issue, failing which a people's movement would be launched from Lucknow to press for an early construction of the temple.

Interacting with media, he said the BJP had been in power nationally for the last four years but millions of Hindus had been left in the lurch over the promise of construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya. "Our patience is running out and if by October a law is not enacted for construction of a Ram temple, we will have to find another alternative."
