Zee Media Bureau
Lucknow: The Akhilesh Yadav Government in Uttar Pradesh on Monday denied permission to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) for holding its proposed yatra in the state from August 25 to September 13.
During the proposed yatra the VHP had planned to renew its campaign for the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed Babri Masjid-Ramjanmabhoomi site in Ayodhya.
"Allowing the yatra would have violated the Supreme Court orders," said UP principal secretary (home) RM Srivastava.
After the announcment was made, the VHP condemned the decision alleging that it violated basic religious rights.
Earlier, VHP leaders had met Mulayam Singh Yadav and CM Akhilesh Yadav, seeking the government`s support and permission for the yatra.
We reminded Mulayam Singh of his announcement that the day court will say that Babri mosque was constructed after demolishing some structure, he will support construction of the temple," VHP leader Ashok Singhal and Swami Chinmayanand had said.
They had met Mulayam and Akhilesh in connection with the proposed Chaurasi Kosi Parikrama of seers on August 25.
