Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has called on the Narendra Modi government to bring a law to built the Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.
Baghwat, during his annual Vijayadashami speech in Nagpur on Thursday said that the temple should have been built already and pressed the Supreme Court to make its decision soon.
Throwing his weight behind the BJP, Bhagwat also urged people to vote for the party as they will bring India together and not break it apart, laying to rest all speculation on whether the Sangh will join the campaign for the Lok Sabha next year or maintain its appearance as an apolitical outfit.
He said the RSS has always been associated with the sentiments of crores of countrymen in the efforts of construction of the temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram.
“Lord Ram is the personification of the life energy of the nation and an icon of upholding dharma. The original constitution has paintings of Lord Ram in it as a national hero,” he said.
He also hit out at the forces, which he called “a few elements” for allegedly stalling the court’s judgment by presenting various newer interventions in the judicial process for their “obvious game-plan”.
“It is in nobody’s interest to test the patience of the society without any reason.
“The construction of the temple is necessary from the self-esteem point of view. It will also pave the way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness in the country,” he said.
