The government should bring in an "appropriate and requisite" law to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat said today in his last Vijaya Dashmi address before next year's general elections, in which the BJP will seek a second term in power. The RSS -- the ruling BJP's ideological mentor -- had earlier expressed confidence that the Supreme Court, where the title suit of the Ayodhya case is pending, will deliver a just verdict. The hearing will begin from October 29.
Today, from the RSS headquarters in Nagpur, Mr Bhagwat said: "The government should clear the path for construction of the grand temple through appropriate and requisite law."
"There is an obvious game plan of a few elements to stall the judgment by presenting various newer interventions in the judicial process," Mr Bhagwat said, adding that it is nobody's interest to test the patience of society without any reason.
The construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya is necessary from the "self-esteem point of view" and it would also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness. "The place of janmabhoomi is yet to be allocated for the construction of the temple, although all kinds of evidence have affirmed that there was a temple at that place," he added.
