"The mahants and sadhus will decide what to do and when to begin the movement for Shri Krishna Janmbhoomi in Mathura. It is with Sant Samiti meeting that Shri Ramjanmbhoomi movement began and got its impetus and now we see the construction of the temple has begun," stated the source.

The decision will be taken as to wait for three years till Ram temple is constructed or not before making a demand. Religious leaders are likely to deliberate on strategy on what needs to be done till the actual movement begins," stated the source.
Apart from the Ram temple issue, the construction of temples at Mathura and Kashi sites has been a key demand of the VHP. (ANI)
