The government, Joshi said, “should take steps to enact a law as per the wishes of sants and Ram bhakts... No other alternative can be imagined... We are not begging, we are expressing our sentiment. We are sure that those who are in government today will understand this and take positive steps”.
Shivpal is going to show strength of his new outfit on Sunday (December 9) by holding it's first rally--Jan Aakrosh Rally--at Ramabai Ambedkar Maidan in Lucknow where party leaders are expecting a gathering Of more than two lakh people.
The BJP had scheduled the rath yatras for December 7, 9, and 14 as part of its preparations for next year’s Lok Sabha elections, but after the state government refused permission, the BJP was forced to postpone them.
VHP international joint general secretary Surendra Jain said that no “Ram virodhi” (anti-Ram) person is left in the country; the atmosphere that has developed has made everyone a “Ram bhakt (devotee)”.
Addressing mediapersons, Chirag Paswan, LJP’s central Parliamentary board chairman, also said that he cannot understand why Kushwaha was upset when all coalition leaders were holding discussions comfortably.
Bhagwat added that the time for “patience” was over. “About one year ago, I had said dhairya rakho. Today I say let’s create public awareness, andolan nirnayak ho (what’s needed is a decisive struggle). We have to take up the task of organising whole Hindu society for it.”
Uddhav said the BJP should not rake up the Ram temple issue while canvassing for polls if it has to leave the matter to the court for judgment. He said the BJP should apologise and admit that their promise was a “chunavi jumla”.
The Sangh Parivar’s apparent attempt to garner support of youth on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue through the Dharma Sabha appeared to be largely successful with a sizeable number of youngsters in the gathering.
Police sources said heavy deployment of security has been made along the roads leading to the disputed site since those reaching Ayodhya for the programmes of the VHP and Shiv Sena are expected to visit the makeshift Ram temple.
In what is first big event the Sena is taking part on Ayodhya since its participation in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement in the early-1990s, Thackeray assured that his party will support a legislation in Parliament or an ordinance on the temple.
