The Vishwa Hindu Parishad
(VHP) is holding a 'Dharam Sabha' rally in Ayodhya
on Sunday, describing it as its "last effort" to clear the hurdles for the construction of a Ram temple in the temple town. The meeting, according to agency reports, has been called to discuss a strategy for the early construction of the temple.

international general secretary Champat inaugurated the Sabha by the lighting of the lamp. He also said, "We want the entire land for construction of Ram temple". He further added that no division of land is acceptable. Rai statements can be seen in reference to the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict.
The Hindu outfit has claimed that around 300,000 devotees have arrived at Uttar Pradesh
to partake in the rally. Earlier in the day, Uddhav Thackeray
also visited the Ram Lalla temple in Ayodhya.
Thackeray said Hindus are today asking when will the temple be made while maintaining that his visit to Ayodhya
is neither for political purposes nor is there any hidden agenda. "I am only asking (BJP) that when you were campaigning for elections you said all possibilities will be explored under the Constitution... what has been done in four years... when will you explore possibilities," he asked.
The RSS and its other affiliates have also thrown in their support to make the event a show of strength so that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the Centre can be pressurised into acting for the early construction of the temple. Shiv Sena
chief Uddhav Thackeray
is also taking part in some events.
