AYODHYA: Senior VHP leader and former BJP MP Ram Vilas Vedanti announced on Tuesday that he would immolate himself on next Ram Navami, in April next year, if the construction of Ram Mandir does not start by them.
Vedanti, one of the main accused in Babri Masjid demolition case, told TOI, “I will kill myself by doing self immolation on next Ram Navami, that will fall in April next year if Ram Mandir construction does not start by then.”
“There is BJP rule in 21 states. If Ram Mandir will not be constructed now, then well will it be?” he asked.
