Allahabad: Welcoming the inclusion of issues like Ram Janmabhoomi, Article 370 and Uniform Civil Code in the BJP’s election manifesto, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today demanded a time-bound roadmap from the party on these subjects.
In a statement here, VHP leader Pravin Togadia, however, said he was disappointed over “no mention of strictly tackling terrorism” in the manifesto.
The firebrand leader said he hopes “this matter will be tackled with immediate effect”.
“It is good that following a strong demand from the VHP and other Hindu organisations, Hindu-related issues like Ram Temple, Article 370, Uniform Civil Code, Kashmiri Pandits and protection of cows have found a place in the BJP’s election manifesto.
“We hope the momentum will be maintained by concrete steps for solving these issues with Hindu well-being as the primary goal” in the event of a BJP-led government coming to power at the Centre, he said.
