Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat urged the Narendra Modi government to bring a law to build Ram Mandir in Ayodhya in his annual Vijayadashami speech in Nagpur on Thursday. Saying that the temple should have been built already, Bhagwat pressed the Apex Court to make its decision soon.
"The government should bring ordinance and build Ayodhya Ram Mandir. No more politics over it now. It's not a controversy of religions', said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
"The temple should have been built by now, but political parties are doing politics over it. Ram is our Lord and his path still guides us. Lord Ram is the Gauravpurush and that Babur was an enemy who made everyone suffer. Babur demolished Ram Mandir to trounce our self-respect. Foundations of the temple have been unearthed, but the case is getting delayed," Mohan Bhagwat said during his Vijayadashami speech in Nagpur.
He eulogised the adaptability of Indian culture saying that it has made political experiments successful.
"Only India can make Mahatma Gandhi's experiment on truth and spirituality successful," he said.
Highlighting the role of freedom fighters in building a strong idea of India, Bhagwat said that Subhash Chandra Bose went out of the country and awakened self-respect among Indian soldiers working abroad and founded independent India's first government working in exile.
Mounting a scathing attack on neighbouring Pakistan, RSS chief said:
"Certain forces are antipathetic to India's existence. Despite the new government there, the border skirmishes continue. The country is strong to fight such force. If someone musters the courage to fight then there is destruction on both sides. So, in order to maintain peace, we have to be so strong that anyone doesn't even think of harming us".
Furthermore, he expressed solidarity towards the soldiers and their families:
"Those who are brave enough to respond a bullet with a bullet, who will think about them? People living on border areas suffer during Pakistan bombings, losing cattle and farms. Yet the people are not ready to move away. Instead they want stronger forces for their safety".
He also expressed displeasure at the delay in the implementation of schemes for SC and ST.
“If help doesn't reach in time, it doesn't really count as help. Schemes for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes aren't implemented. Why is money for these schemes not spent? And then is diverted at the end of financial year in March?”,the centre not spending funds meant for SC/ST sub-plans, says Mohan Bhagwat in Vijaydashami speech.
"It has been more than three decades since the Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan and Tribal Sub-Plan was implemented. To recompense ‘untouchables’ for the injustice meted out to them, a scheme called ‘Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan’ for the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and ‘Tribal Sub-Plan’ for the Scheduled Tribes (STs) was conceptualised by Indira Gandhi in the Sixth Five-Year Plan period of 1980-85", he added.
