Panaji, Aug 9 (UNI) BJP Goa unit will take out a rally to protest against the recent revocation of land assigned to Amarnath Shrine Board in Jammu and Kashmir, to Raj Bhavan on August 13.

Disclosing this to mediapersons here today, the unit president and MP Shripad Y Naik said the party will submit a memorandum to the governor, to be forwarded to the President and the prime minister, demanding the land back for the Board to facilitate thousands of Hindu pilgrims visiting the shrine every year.

''It was unbecoming of the Congress-led government in Jammu and Kashmir to promise the land and then withdraw the order at a time when all the governments were trying to provide the pilgrims with more amenities irrespective of their religion,'' he said.

''The government acted against the sentiments of the Hindus to pamper a fundamentalist party in the border state,'' he alleged.
