We will be visiting every household to appeal every Hindu to organise religious rituals to support construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya as per their own belief wherever they want to do it be it at home, temple and public place. Jains, Budhdhists, Sikhs, Valmikis. Arya Samajis and Therapanthi all sects belonging to larger Hindu umbrella will be participating in this programme."

It has also been decided organising a huge rally in Delhi on December 9.

They had met President of India Ram Nath Kovind immediately after the meeting. They have already met governors in October and meeting with MPs cutting across party lines just started.
