'Elements' trying to stall Ayodhya verdict: RSS chief

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday accused "fundamentalist elements" of a gameplan to stall the Supreme Court verdict on 'Ramjanmabhoomi' in Ayodhya and asked the BJP-led government at the Centre to frame a "requisite law" to ensure that grand temple of Lord Rama comes up.

"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. There is an obvious game-plan of a few elements to stall the judgment by presenting various newer interventions in the judicial process. It is in nobody’s interest to test the patience of the society without any reason," the RSS chief said addressing the annual Vijayadashami rally in Nagpur.

"The construction of the temple is necessary from the self-esteem point of view; it will also pave the way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness in the country. This matter of national interest is being obstructed by some fundamentalist elements and forces that play communal politics for selfish gains," he said.

However, he said that despite such machinations, the decision regarding ownership of the land should be expedited, and the Government should clear the path for construction of the grand temple through appropriate and requisite law.
