With Ayodhya Ram Temple issue bouncing back to the centre stage of Uttar Pradesh politics ahead of the 2017 Assembly polls, VHP has decided to construct temples in every village across the country.
“The organization has decided to set up a temple of Lord Ram in every village,” spokesman of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Sharad Sharma said today.
He said from April 15 — Ram Navami — the organization would start a seven-day-long Ram Mahotsava.
“During this period Lord Ram will be worshipped in every village,” he said.
Sharma said the target is to reach 1.25 lakh villages.
“We had been observing Ram Mahotsava in the past and the organization has already reached 70,000-75,000 villages pan-India,” he said.
