The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has called for chakka jam at 22 points in New Delhi [Images] on August 13 to protest the revocation of the order to hand over land to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board. Essential services have been exempt.

VHP International General Secretary Dr Pravin Togadia told a press conference at the VHP's Delhi office, "The agitation is limited to four hours. We are resorting to this to press for our demand that Jammu and Kashmir [Images] government rescind its order not to hand over land to the SASB."
