No indication from PM on Ram temple: VHP

New Delhi: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has said that there was no indication from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.

In a statement on Monday, VHP general secretary Champat Rai said: “VHP is of the view that Ram Mandir at Ayodhya should be built through an act of parliament. VHP has always respected the court and have faith in it.”

“Time has come for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Lot of stones arrived. And now the arrival of stones will continue. We have signals from Modi government that the construction of temple would be done now,” media reports had quoted Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, president of Ram Mandir Nyas, as saying.

“Reports published in media are false. Arrival of stones is a common practice and since 1990, thousands of trucks full of stones have arrived and kept at Ramghat Karyashala after fretwork (nakkashi),” Rai said.
