VHP welcomes Rajnath’s view on temple issue

via PTI published on December 26, 2006

AHMEDABAD: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Monday welcomed the statement of BJP president Rajnath Singh on construction of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya.

“I congratulate Rajnath Singh for his statement that if the BJP returns to power, it will bring a legislation to build Ram Temple,” VHP international general secretary Pravin Togadia said addressing a Hindu Sammelan at Gandhinagar as part of centenary celebrations of RSS leader Guru Madhavrao Gowalkar.

Togadia also cautioned Rajnath Singh about the “secular virus” which has entered the party. “Jinnah bhakts should be driven out of the party,” he advised Rajnath.

The VHP leader said, “Earlier BJP leaders after gaining power at the Centre had diluted their commitment towards building of Ram Temple. After getting the post they said the issue would be resolved by negotiations or court order.”

However, statement of Rajnath Singh has changed BJP’s stand on the issue and VHP welcomes it, Togadia said.

“The action of BJP leaders after coming to power has derailed Hindutva centric politics. VHP will extend its support to Rajnath Singh,” he added.
