Bhopal: VHP leader Praveen Togadia today expressed hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would ensure a grand Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya as decided by the BJP national executive and promised in the Lok Sabha elections.
Mr Togadia, the executive international president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), told reporters in Bhopal that a grand temple of Lord Ram would be built at the place where Babri mosque was demolished on December 6, 1992.
"In the national executive meet of the BJP, a promise was made to build Ram temple on the lines of Gujarat's Somnath temple by passing a law in parliament. I trust Narendra Modi," Mr Togadia said.
"I trust that fulfilling the promise made in the party's resolution and promised during elections, he would realise the dream of millions of Hindus for building a temple dedicated to Lord Ram," he added.
Giving a call to all Hindus to stay prepared to construct a grand Ram Mandir, he said the holy men should stay ready to follow direction.
"Lord Ram's temple will be built, just as Sardar Patel had built Somnath temple, meaning by making a legislation in Parliament," the VHP leader said.
