The Yatra started from Ayodhya Tuesday late evening and took night halt in Bharat Kund locality about 20 km from Ayodhya town.

Sharad Sharma, VHP spokesperson said in here that the organizers of the Yatra had requested the organisation's support a programme was held in Ayodhya. "Actually the VHP is not the part of that Yatra, as it is being organised by another society.
