Ram Sethu: Togadia warns of Ayodhya-type backlash

via PTI published on October 8, 2007

Pune:Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s International General Secretary Praveen Togadia on Monday said that the destruction of Ram Setu would trigger a major Hindu backlash similar to the one witnessed during the “Ayodhya mass movement” in 1992.

Addressing a public meeting here organised on the occasion of VHP’s anniversary yesterday, Togadia termed the Sethusamudram project as an “international conspiracy” aimed at depriving India of the Thorium deposits.

The elements which did not want the country to emerge as an economic power were behind the implementation of the project, he said.

He further said that the Central government was behaving as an “agent of the US” and the controversial nuclear power agreement was an indication of this servility.

The VHP leader felicitated city historian Pandurang Balkawde and presented him the ‘Dharmaraksha’ award on the occasion.
