VHP favours "Hindutvavadi" Parliament
Allahabad: Asserting the Ram Janmabhoomi dispute could be resolved only by Parliament and not by a court of law, the VHP on Friday said it would initiate efforts at the Maha Kumbh here to ensure that those sensitive towards the sentiments of Hindus were elected to it in a large number.
"The proposed construction of a temple of Lord Rama at Ayodhya has hit a deadlock due to legal tangles. The VHP has always believed this is an issue that can be resolved only by Parliament and not by a court of law," Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Ashok Singhal told reporters here.
"We need a Hindutvavadi Sansad wherein elected members are sensitive towards the sentiments of Hindus," he said.
"We will initiate efforts towards achieving the goal of a Hindutvavadi Sansad at the ongoing Maha Kumbh next week," the VHP leader said.
"We will seek to ensure that those sensitive towards the Hindu cause are elected to Parliament in a sufficiently large number", he said.
A meeting of the Kendriya Margdarshak Mandal (Central Advisory Council) would take place on February 06 which would be followed by a Dharm Sansad and Sant Mahasammelan a day later, Singhal said.
Sangh Parivar leaders and religious heads would chalk out a strategy to safeguard the "interest of Hindu community" at these meetings, he said.
On possible projection of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as BJP`s Prime Ministerial candidate, Singhal quipped "this is BJP`s internal matter".
