BJP falls back on Rath yatra again

Vishwa Hindu Parishad, a right-wing Hindu group is back at its Ratha yatra political game plan.

Days before the Supreme Court’s final hearing on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), will launch a “Ram Rajya Rath Yatra” from Ayodhya on Tuesday.

The Yatra will be flagged off by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from Karrsevakpuram in Ayodhya and cover UP, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and conclude at Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu.

Perhaps the game plan is to whip up Pan-Hinduism in 2019 polls as Modi charm appears to be waning.
