Mumbai: The RSS will be holding a three-day meet in Palghar beginning Wednesday to discuss the Ram Temple issue, said reports. “The RSS is of the opinion that a Ram temple should be constructed at the disputed site. The Supreme Court should immediately decide the case. If there are problems, the Centre should bring a legislation to remove the obstacles and hand over the Ram Janamsthan bhoomi to the Shri Ramjanmabhoomi Nyas,” Arun Kumar, the Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh of the RSS, said.

“Building a Ram temple at Ayodhya would lead to an atmosphere of goodwill and harmony in the country,” he added. He claimed that with the Allahabad High Court’s decision, it was already established beyond doubt that the land concerned was the birthplace of Lord Ram and a temple existed at the site before the disputed structure. Now the issue was limited to the decision on the construction of the temple on the said land, he said.

As far as today’s meeting is concerned, Kumar said the organisation took a review of its functioning twice a year, first at the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) in March and then at the half-yearly meet between Vijaya Dashami and Diwali, which was known as the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal (ABKM). “The ABPS is attended by around 1,400 representatives and resolutions are passed in it. The ABKM is a comparatively smaller meeting with around 350 representatives from 11 regions and 43 state units of the RSS and the organising secretaries of seven of its prominent allied organisations,” Kumar said. On Day 1, Mohan Bhagwat will address the representatives.

The RSS has been pressing for Ram Temple in Ayodhya and has found support in Shiv Sena as well while the Congress has been questioning the motive behind the timing of the demand. On Tuesday, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said the issue was raised every time that elections were approaching. He said the Government could bring in a legislation if it wanted, “Were they sleeping for the past four years?” His party colleague P Chidambaram had echoed his sentiments a day ago, on Monday.
