The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) won’t launch any agitation to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya till assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh get over next year, its leader Pravin Togadia said on Tuesday.

Togadia, however, said the VHP was committed to constructing a grand Ram temple at the site where the 16th century Babri mosque was razed in December 1992.

“(A) Ram temple in Ayodhya will be constructed. It is a fact,” he said.

VHP activists who brought down the Babri mosque built on its ruins a makeshift Ram temple, which is open to pilgrims. The VHP has always said it plans to erect a grand Ram temple there.

Togadia also lauded the Bihar government’s decision to impose prohibition in the state.
