RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that the government should clear the path for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya through an appropriate and requisite law. Speaking on the occasion of annual Vijyadashmi speech in Nagpur, Mr Bhagwat said that temple construction was necessary from the self-esteem point of view and it will also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness.
Speaking about National security, Mr Bhagwat said India needs to become self-reliant in defence production. He emphasised that India should get technology and enhance domestic capacity. He said that the country should purchase defence equipment from international market on its own terms.
Amid ongoing protests at Sabarimala, RSS chief said the Supreme Court verdict has not taken into consideration the nature and premise of the tradition that has been accepted by society. Mr Mohan Bhagwat cautioned against urban Maoism and charged that urban Maoism was propagating falsehood and spreading hatred in the society.
