New Delhi, Dec 1 : Seeking to mount pressure for early construction of Ram Temple at Ayodhya, the Sanghparivar fountainhead Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Saturday embarked on a ten-day 'Sankalp Rath Yatra' in Delhi.
The Yatra comes in the wake of recent developments wherein the case related to the dispute is now slated to come before the Supreme Court in January 2019.
RSS, VHP and other organisations are putting pressure on the government for the construction of a grand Ram Temple at Ayodhya.
However, a senior RSS leader Suresh ‘Bhaiyaji’ Joshi has said: "We are not putting any pressure on the government in connection with the Ram Temple. On the contrary, we are talking about finding a solution based on consensus".
In a statement, he has also said: "The honourable saints should be consulted and a solution should be found. Any government runs on a balance between consensus and law. The government did not construct the temple in spite of having majority – this shows its faith in the court. The court too should understand the sensitivities of the issue and think on it".
The Rath Yatra, which began from Jhandewala Mandir here, will culminate on December 9 at Ramlila Maidan. RSS sources said the national capital has been "divided" into eight regions and Rath Yatra will visit a different region every day.
Recently, VHP had a successful rally at Ayodhya.(UNI)
