VHP to hold rally in Delhi today, traffic diverted
NEW DELHI: The right-wing group Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) is organising a "dharam sansad", or a congregation of Hindu priests, at the famous Ramlila ground in Delhi on Sunday demanding the early construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya. The rally comes just days before the commencement of winter session of Parliament.
The rally's single-mided goal is to pressurise political parties to pass a bill for the construction of a Ram temple.
