Cong in a bind over Ram Van Path Ya­tra

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - My India My Vote -

The Mad­hya Pradesh Congress ap­pears to be in a bind over the Ram Van Ga­man Path Ya­tra started by one Har­is­hankar Shukla of Chi­trakoot. State Congress chief Ka­mal Nath had an­nounced last month that his party will con­struct the Ram Van Ga­man Path in Chikrakoot, said to be the abode of Lord Ram for 11 of the 14 years of his ex­ile and is also the place where poet-saint Tul­si­das wrote his ver­sion of the Ra­mayana epic. Nath’s an­nounce­ment was aimed at cor­ner­ing chief min­is­ter Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who had on dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions promised to con­struct the path to tell the story about Ram’s stay in Chi­trakoot, but the pro­posal was never im­ple­mented. The Congress had formed a com­mit­tee and the ya­tra was launched. The Congress, how­ever, dis­tanced it­self af­ter the rath (bus) used in Shukla’s ya­tra was seized by the Din­dori dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion on Tues­day night fol­low­ing a com­plaint by a lo­cal BJP leader.
