Prayagraj: The Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) has demanded that the statue of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Ashok Singhal be installed in Ayodhya and Prayagraj. Singhal was the pioneer leader of the Ram temple movement. The ABAP has also said that a ‘Kirti Stambh’ (memorial pillar) should also be built in Ayodhya to commemorate those who lost their lives during the temple movement. ABAP President Mahant Narendra Giri said, “The names of people who lost their lives in the temple movement should also be inscribed on the pillars.” Also Read – Ayodhya will be auspicious, preparing for rejuvenation, Ram will be everywhere, know Ram
The plan of saints is that after passing this resolution in ABAP, a formal proposal in this subject should be sent to the Center. For this, further action will be taken in the ABAP meeting to be held during Navratri in the third week of October. ABAP general secretary Swami Hari Giri said, “There was a struggle for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya for decades and many people lost their lives. Former VHP chief Ashok Singhal struggled for this his entire life and the Kothari brothers (Ram Kumar and Sharad Kothari of Kolkata) died in police firing in Ayodhya on November 2, 1990. ” Also Read – Now the saint said – PM Narendra Modi will only inaugurate the Ram temple, now will keep the Kashi-Mathura, those bats who are not happy

In this, along with installing the statue of Singhal near Sangam, the names of those who played an important role in this struggle are also mentioned.
