Rashtriya Swayayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday evening asserted that Ram Mandir was a certainty and have full faith in Lord Rama. Talking to reporters informally on the sidelines of a programme, Bhagwat said RSS stand is crystal clear and Mandir will be built in Ayodhya.
He was reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement during an interview that the government was waiting for all legal proceedings. When asked the BJP led government has little time left before general elections and imposing of code of conduct, Bhagwat said time can be changed any time without elaborating further. When his attention was drawn to a statement
of RSS general secretary that RSS was firm on the government ordnance, the RSS chief said we both have same view. He is general secretary while I am the sarsanghachalak.
Bhagwat was chief guest at a prize distribution function of Seva Sadan Education Sanstha. Kanchantai Gadkari, Chairperson of the institution welcomed the guests.
Speaking on the occasion, Bhagwat lamented the state of present education system imposed by the Central government, which according to him was not relevant today, He called for change in the education system to suit the present generation. Education which provides degree and not employment is not at all practical, Bhagwat said.
Meanwhile, the RSS last night rejected Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s suggestions that an ordinance to build a Ram Mandir would arise only after the Supreme Court verdict and reiterated the demand for an ordinance or a law to build a Ram temple at Ayodhya at the earliest.
After the reaction of the RSS, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad also joined the fountainhead of the Sangh Parivar and demanded for enacting a law or promulgating an ordinance to enable the speedy construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The RSS general secretary, Suresh (Bhaiyyaji) Joshi said last night that his organisation wanted that the government should introduce a law to construct the temple, immediately. Joshi was speaking with media persons on Wednesday evening after attending a function of a college here in Nagpur. Reacting on an interview of Modi to a news agency that the ordinance on Ram Mandir can arise only after legal process gets over and Supreme Court gives its verdict,
Joshi said that he didn’t know what Modi had exactly said about the issue, but the RSS wants that the government should bring a law to build the Ram temple immediately. “We stand by our decision,” he added.
