VHP takes a pledge on Ram Navami to build Ram temple

New Delhi: Pledging to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya at the earliest, hundreds of VHP activists today took out processions here with colourful tableaux and decked up horses on Ram Navami, celebrating the birth of Lord Ram.

Echoing the sentiments of the activists, Vishwa Hindu Parishad international general secretary Pravin Togadia said in a message that all of them would toil towards the construction of the temple.

"We pledge to build the Ram temple at the earliest. After the verdict of the judges (Allahabad High Court), the hurdles are almost out of the way for its construction", Togadia said.

He reiterated that the VHP would not accept anything less than the entire 67-acre plot for the purpose.

Around 200 decorated tableaux, 21 horses and 51 bikes with music bands playing 'Ram dhun' held processions on the streets of the national capital.
