Bhubaneswar,November 6(Odisha.in) The State unit of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Tuesday announced to organise a month-long “Ram Sethu Shila Yatra” from Nov 26 .
The yatra will traverse the whole State in order to mobilize public opinion against the Sethu Samundram Shipping Canal project of the DMK led Tamil Nadu Government.
VHP will organize such yatras in 2,000 places across the country from November 20 to protect Ram Sethu.
VHP State secretary Gouri Prasad Rath said that millions of Hindus would be enrolled for the yatra and poojas would be performed in all 12 “jyotirlingas” during it.
He called upon all Hindu politicians to support the yatra for safeguarding the Ram Sethu in the State. He alleged that said that the UPA and Tamil Nadu Government and are serving the interests of the Americans and the Chinese through the Sethusamudram project.
When the common people, scientists, environmentalists and archaeologists are vouching for the existence of the Ram Sethu and the grave dangers posed by its proposed breaking, Union Minister T R Baalu and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister
Karunanidhi are bent upon rubbishing them and trying to thrust their dictatorship.
Do such people have a right to continue in their offices?” Rath asked
