The Vishva Hindu Parishad will hold public rallies in all parliamentary constituencies to urge the government and pressure political parties to bring a legislation for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, its working president Alok Kumar said Saturday.
"There was a king's road and a queen's road, there was a Hardinge Bridge in Delhi. They were renamed to Rajpath, Janpath, and Tilak Bridge by then Congress government. Restoring the old names or changing the names of places named after people who have attacked India is a sound thing to do for restoration of national pride," he said.
The governors have assured us they will convey it to the president and the prime minister, he added.
"We will hold public rallies and other programmes in all parliamentary constituencies and will meet all MPs to insist that they support the legislation on Ram Mandir. We will hold the first three public meetings on November 25 in Nagpur, Ayodhya and Bengaluru. The whole thing will culminate in a big public rally on December 9 at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi," Kumar said.
"We hope that this (public rallies) would strengthen the government to bring a bill and put pressure on other parties to support or at least not to oppose it," he added.
