VHP commits itself to Ram Mandir construction, to raise donations from 90 lakh people in Karnataka | Bengaluru News


BENGALURU: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Tuesday reaffirmed its commitment to the construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, with its central working president Alok Kumar claiming that it has embarked upon a nationwide donation collection drive for the purpose.
Kumar, who was in Bengaluru for the Karnataka leg of generating donations, said that the VHP was going to the doorsteps of 4 lakh villages and 11 crore families from the “Hindu society” to collect donations for the construction of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple and other facilities in Ayodhya.
“And as part of this, the VHP will be reaching out to 27,500 villages in Karnataka and urge 90 lakh devotees for obtaining the donations for the Mandir,” said Kumar.
Kumar made it a point to say that the Udupi Pejawar Mutt seer Vishva Prasanna Teertha is a trustee of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra.
Explaining the modus operandi of the donation collection drive, VHP said a team of 5 volunteers will be going to these villages and providing printed coupons of Rs 10, Rs 100 and Rs 1000 denomination against which people can pay towards the Ram Mandir.
For donations of Rs 2,000 or more, there shall be a receipt issued against it and the donor shall have the benefit of section 80G of the income tax act.
The donations once collected will be deposited in the bank account of the Teerth Kshetra within 48 hours, with every depositor having been given a registered code number at the nearest branch of one of three banks– State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda and Punjab National Bank.
The VHP is the second organisation after the state BJP announced its donation collection drive, earlier last week, for the Ram Mandir construction from the Sangh parivar.
