Ram temple construction in fully legal way may begin by year end: VHP

NEW DELHI: Vishwa Hindu Parishad working president Alok Kumar today hoped that the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya would begin by the year end in a legal and constitutional manner overcoming all statutory roadblocks.

“It is expected that the Supreme Court will begin the hearing on Ram janambhoomi  dispute on a day-to-day basis …And if it happens, the final order may come by the September end,” Kumar told PTI-Bhasha today.
