Nagpur: Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat Wednesday night asserted that the Ram Mandir was a certainty and appealed people to have full faith in Lord Rama. Talking to reporters informally on the sidelines of a programme, Bhagwat said that the RSS stand was crystal clear and the Mandir would be built in Ayodhya.

Mr Bhagwat was reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement during an interview that the government was waiting for all legal proceedings. When pointed out that the BJP-led government had little time left before the general elections and imposition of the code of conduct, Bhagwat said time could be changed without elaborating further. When his attention was drawn to a statement made by the RSS general secretary that RSS was firm on the government ordinance, Bhagwat said that both shared the same view. He was general secretary while Bhagwat was the sarsanghchalaka.


The RSS on Tuesday night rejected the PM’s suggestion that an ordinance to build the Ram Mandir would arise only after the Supreme Court, which was hearing the matter, delivered its verdict.

After the RSS’s reaction, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) also joined the fountainhead of the sangh parivar and demanded that a law be enacted or ordinance be promulgated to enable the speedy construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

The RSS general secretary, Suresh (Bhaiyyaji) Joshi said on Tuesday night that his organisation wanted that the government should introduce a law to construct the temple, immediately. Joshi was speaking with media persons Wednesday evening after attending a college function in Nagpur.


Reacting to an interview of the PM where the PM said that the ordinance on the Ram Mandir could arise only after legal process got over and the SC gave its verdict, Joshi said that he did not know what the PM had said exactly about the issue but the RSS wanted that the government bring a law to build the Ram temple immediately. “We stand by our decision,” he added.
