Lucknow: Nirmohi Akhara has alleged that Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) embezzled Rs 1,400 crore in the name of Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir. Nirmohi Akhara is a party in the Ram Mandir conflict.
“Nirmohi Akhara has never sought any kind of money from anyone. The VHP, on the other hand, took money as donations from people for the construction of the temple. They instead used this money to construct their own buildings,” a party member, Sitaram alleged as per New 18.
“We are the main party in the issue and these politicians just want to hijack the entire issue for vested interests. They have even formed a government using that money. Not a single penny was used for the Ram Mandir cause. It looks like politicians have collected notes and votes in the name of Ram Mandir, but don’t want to do anything about it,” Sitaram stated.
On the other hand, VHP leader Vinod Bansal denied the accusation and said that VHP has accounted for “every penny” since it was formed in 1964.
