VHP to float 'Hindu Matdata Manch'
[ 25 Mar, 2007 0332hrs IST TIMES NEWS NETWORK ]

LUCKNOW: To prevent the division of Hindu votes in the coming assembly elections, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has decided to float a new forum, 'Hindu Matdata Manch'.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, the international president of VHP Ashok Singhal said that the first and the foremost issue for the VHP was to prevent division of Hindu votes during the assembly elections. "For that the VHP has decided to constitute a new forum in the name of Hindu Matdata Manch. This organisation will work day in and day night to keep the Hindu votes intact," said Singhal.

While refraining from declaring its open support to the Bharatiya Janata Party, the VHP leader said that his organisation will lend its support to an outfit or a candidate which will pledge to implement the Hindu agenda'. "On our agenda there are seven issues including construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, goraksha, fight against terrorism and internal security," said Singhal.

Holding the Congress, the SP and the BSP responsible for creating a wedge in 'Hindu society' on the pretext of pseudo-secularism, Singhal said that the new forum floated by the VHP would strive to consolidate the Hindu votes.

Though the VHP chief praised former state chief minister Kalyan Singh by saying that "Hindus mat avam hit surakshit hai unke haath mein," refused to answer queries on whether his outfit would pledge its open support to the BJP.

Referring to Rahul Gandhi's remark on Babri mosque demolition, Singhal said that it was now clear that the Congress wanted to build a mosque at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
