The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has initiated a ‘Sankalp Yatra’ in New Delhi to push for the early construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. However, the rally which was flagged off on Saturday, 1 December got an underwhelming start, reported NDTV.

According to the report, the organisers, Swadesh Jagran Manch, which is affiliated to the RSS, expected lakhs of people to participate but in reality only a few hundred workers turned up.

The 10-day rally started off from Jhandewala temple and will culminate at the Ramlila Maidan on 9 December.

However, speaking to the channel, Swadeshi Jagran Manch co-convenor Kamal Tewari said that they will soon be joined by more karyakartas. He also added that they expect around 6-8 lakh people on 9 December.

Organisers of the rally are of the view that the Supreme Court is delaying the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and that the centre should pass an ordinance in the regard. In fact, several right wing groups have been demanding an early decision on the Ram temple issue.
