RAMESWARAM Ram Setu Raksha Manch organised a huge vehicle rally in Delhi on March 4 against the recent affidavit filed by the UPA government in Supreme Court again questioning the existence of Ram Sethu. About 10,000 Rambhaktas riding around 5000 vehicles took part in the rally, which started from Ramlila Grounds at 10.00 a.m. The rally culminated at Rajghat and converted into a public meeting after covering a distance of around seven km through Asaf Ali Road, Delhi Gate, Ring Road and Hanuman Mandir (Marghat Wale). The rally was jointly led by convener of the Manch Shri Rashtra Prakash and central secretary of VHP Shri Rajendra Pankaj.
Addressing the gathering, joint general secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Shri Champat Rai said by filling the affidavit in the Supereme Court the UPA government has not only questioned the existence of Ram Setu, but also clearly repeated its earlier affidavit denying the historicity of Sri Ram, which no Hindu throughout the world would accept. He called upon all Hindus of the world to fight against this mischief on the part of the government. Bhagwan Ram hamari rag rag main hain (Shri Ram is in every drop of our blood), he declared.
Shri Om Prakash Singhal, state president of Indraprastha VHP, said that the government has cleverly avoided to reply the two main questions of the Supreme Court that why could the Ram Sethu not be declared a national monument and when the five other alternative routes are available for the Sethusamudram project, why is it adamant to destroy the Ram Sethu?
Shri Kuppuramanan, central secretary of Rameswaram Ram Sethu Raksha Manch came from Rameshwaram to attend the rally. Patron of Delhi unit of the Manch Shri Ramsharan Jindal, state Bajrang Dal chief Shri Ashok Kapoor, his deputy advocate Sailandra Jaiswal, organising secretary Shri Karuna Prakash, state president of Rashtriya Sikh Sangat Sardar Ujagar Singh and Shri Brijmohan Sethi of Sewa Bharati also attended the rally.
