He added the movement should not stop now. Hindu across the should step forward if front-runners are stopped. He added, How did you decide that land should be returned, who are you (centre govt). We have to construct grand Ram Temple in that 67 acres. he added while referring to Centre’s move to seek permission to Supreme Court requesting to release 67 acres of undisputed land and should be handed over to Ram Janmabhoomi nyas. Centre seeks direction to release 67 acres acquired land out of which 0.313 acres is disputed land.
