VHP threatens to begin temple construction work from March 15

Upping the ante, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Sunday announced that the process of temple construction at Ayodhya (in Uttar Pradesh) would begin from March 15 with transfer of 'carved stone pillars' from the workshop to the site of the shrine.

The actual construction of the Ram temple will start on a suitable date after March 15 on the advice of astrologers, president of the Ram Janambhoomi Nyas, Mahant Ram Chandra Paramhans, said at a joint press conference with VHP president Ashok Singhal in Ayodhya.

"We have given sufficient time to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to remove the obstacles for construction of the Ram temple and we shall wait up to March 12," Paramhans said.

Since the 'shilanyas' for the temple, which was performed in 1989, there has been no progress in the temple construction work, he complained.
