RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat pitches for legally constructing Ram Mandir

Mohan Bhagwat

Nagpur, Oct 18: Highlighting the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya as a matter of national interest, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday pitched for building it as soon as possible through “appropriate and requisite law” and slammed certain “fundamentalist forces” for obstructing the process.

Addressing the RSS cadres during the annual “Vijayadashmi Utsav”, Bhagwat said the fundamentalist elements and forces were “playing communal politics for selfish gains”.

Despite such machinations, the RSS Chief stated “the place of Ram Janmabhoomi is yet to be allocated although evidence have affirmed that there was a temple at that place. The temple would have been constructed long ago if there wasn’t political interference. We want govt to clear the path for construction through law”.

Mohan further said that the RSS has always been associated with the sentiments of citizens in the efforts over the construction of a 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.

The Dussehra function is significant in the RSS’ yearly calendar as the organisation was established on Vijayadashami in 1925 and the “Sarsanghchalak” or the RSS chief addresses a gathering of workers to mark the day.

Before his speech, Bhagwat also performed a Shastra Puja.

Nobel Peace Prize winner and social activist Kailash Satyarthi was the chief guest at the event held at Reshimbaug here.

NDA govt created history in MSP hikes: Modi

Facing protests by farmers on the three agriculture-related Bills passed by Parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asserted that the NDA government had created history with regard to increase in MSPs of crops.

Addressing a party function held to commemorate Bharatiya Jana Sangh chief Deendayal Upadhyaya’s birth anniversary, he again defended the proposed legislations and said that small farmers would benefit the most.

“Small and marginal farmers, who constitute 86 per cent of those involved in agriculture, will benefit the most from agricultural reforms and the new laws,” Modi added.

The Prime Minister exhorted BJP workers to take the message of agriculture reforms and its benefits to the Indian farmers.

He also attacked the opposition parties, adding that only empty slogans were given by previous governments in the name of farmers till now.

AS for labour reforms, he said: “Only 30 per cent workers were so far covered under the minimum wages guarantee scheme, but now it will be extended to all workers in the unorganised sector. New laws will ensure timely salary to over 50 crore workers.”

The Prime Minister said that the welfare schemes initiated by his government drew inspiration from Upadhyaya, while praising BJP workers for serving people during the coronavirus lockdown.

Amid opposition protests, Parliament has passed The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, apart from three Bills related to labour.
