Former Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Tuesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had so far done nothing for the construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Togadia, who has floated a political outfit called the Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad, said Modi had cheated Hindus by failing to ensure the temple’s construction.

“The prime minister does not have time to come to Ayodhya and have see Ram lala but has time to visit mosques in foreign countries,” PTI quoted Togadia as saying. “The Modi government has done nothing so far for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya. They have betrayed crores of Hindus by failing to enact a law for the construction of temples in Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi.”

The Hindutva leader said he has prepared a draft bill for the construction of the temple as the government is busy with other matters. Togadia said his organisation would take out a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya in October, and launch a signature campaign in the city.

Togadia quit as VHP’s international working president on April 14 after his nominee Raghav Reddy was defeated in the election for the post of the outfit’s president.
