Massive congregation in Ayodhya, govt declines need for Army

But the Union Minister VK Singh for now has refused the need to deploy the Army in Uttar Pradesh in view of the massive gathering

With more and more people pouring into Ayodhya to press the government for Ram Mandir ahead of the 2019 national election, there are apprehensions too that things may spiral out of hand.

But the Union Minister VK Singh for now has refused the need to deploy the Army in Uttar Pradesh in view of the massive gathering.

The Army angle had been introduced by former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav who had expressed concerns over the two big Ram temple themed events organised by the Shiv Sena and the right wing group Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Ayodhya.

It need be mentioned that the VHP estimates a total of three lakh people are attending the programme to discuss the way forward for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

It has also been reported that many Muslims have already left Ayodhya fearing violence may erupt if emotions go out of control.

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray warned the centre that unless the temple is built, the BJP would find itself out of power.
