Senior BJP leader today said construction of the proposed in will commence soon and it will be ready to receive devotees by next

Hurdles in the way of the proposed are being removed, Swami said without elaborating.


"Construction of the temple is likely to begin sooner than later. This week we will be celebrating and by next the is likely to be ready to receive devotees," he said addressing a seminar here organised by the Bihar unit of Virat Hindustan Sangam (VHS), which he has floated.

The Rajya Sabha MP said for electoral success "it is essential that the ideology of Hindutva is never lost sight of".

Swami said VHS would make efforts for the construction of a grand temple dedicated to Lord Ram's consort Sita at Sitamarhi in north Bihar, believed to be her birthplace. "It is impossible to think of Maryada Purushottam Sri Rama without his companion Jagat Janani Janaki".

Plans were also afoot by VHS to also set up a university there. The university will serve as a centre for Indian renaissance where ancient Indian learning will be promoted alongside imparting of contemporary vocational training, he said, adding the organisation also proposed to undertake similar projects at other places of historical importance in all districts across Bihar.
