The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) will begin its 39-day 'Ram Rajya Rath Yatra' from Ayodhya to Rameswaram on Tuesday. The yatra, which will pass through six states, will culminate on March 23.
The preparations for the yatra are being organised by two Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh affiliates - the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Muslim Rashtriya Manch. The yatra is expected to be flagged off by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
As per reports, in order to revive the Ram temple movement before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, nearly 40 public meetings will be held. The yatra will pass through Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
The rath yatra comes days before the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit is expected to come up before the apex court for the final hearing.
