BHUBANESWAR: Extending support to Vishwa Hindu Parishad's demand for enactment of a legislation in the winter session of the parliament commencing from December 11 for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the state unit of the VHP organised a massive rally in the city on Sunday.

Speakers of VHP and other RSS affiliates addressing the rally urged the Centre to respect the sentiment of majority Hindus by facilitating the construction of temple at the earliest. With the Supreme Court taking its own time to pronounce its verdict on the Ram temple case, they strongly pleaded the Narendra Modi government to bring an ordinance for the temple construction.

"It is the responsibility of an elected government to honour the sentiment of the people. The Modi government at Centre has been ignoring the majority demand for a temple at Ayodhya for a long time. After waiting for a long time to realise their dream of having a temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram, the people have started losing patience," said senior VHP leader and member of the central advisory board of the parishad Akhileswarananda Maharaj.

Expressing his displeasure over the delay in construction of the temple, the VHP leader from Jabalpur said those are in the corridor of power in New Delhi had assured to build a Ram temple. However, they have failed to keet their promise.

The time has come to take a decision failing which the people of the country will give them a befitting reply, he said while addressing the rally.
