The VHP and Bajrang Dal will stage a road blockade across Telangana on Thursday demanding immediate withdrawal of orders externing the head of Sri Peetham of Kakinada Swami Paripoornananda for six months.
"Telangana government's order to extern Swami Paripoornananda is an insult to Hindu samaj," VHP Telangana state president Rama Raju told reporters here today.
He demanded that the Telangana government immediately and unconditionally withdraw the externment orders.
It is unfortunate that the Swamij was externed, he said.
VHP and Bajrang Dal would stage a road blockade across Telangana on Thursday demanding that government withdraw the externment orders, he said.
It would also organise a convention of seers soon if the orders are not withdrawn, the VHP leader said.
He condemned the preventive arrests of BJP legislators and leaders on Monday over the matter.
Swami Paripoornananda was externed on July 10 for allegedly making provocative speeches targeting other communities and their leaders.
