VHP general secretary Dr Parvin Togadia asserted that the construction of Sri Ram temple in Ayodhya is linked with the faith and devotion of the Hindus. Therefore, the movement for reconstruction of the temple is going to be launched from August 15 afresh. He was addressing the VHP workers at a training camp organised at Nand Lal Geeta Vidya Mandir, Tapela near Ambala. The workers from Jammu, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi participated in the camp. Dr Togadia lashed out at the Government for hurting the self-respect of Hindus. He warned if the J&K government did not withdraw the tax imposed on Hindus visiting Vaishno Devi and Amarnath pilgrimage the Hindus would not sit silent.
