Temple construction is necessary from a self-esteem point of view; it will also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness, Bhagwat said

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday demanded law for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Temple construction is necessary from a self-esteem point of view; it will also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness, Bhagwat said. 

In his annual Vijayadashmi address at the RSS headquarters at Reshimbagh, Nagpur, he said Maoism has always been "urban" and the neo-Left doctrine of urban Naxals is to establish an "anti-national" leadership with blind followers solely committed to them.

He charged that "urban Maoism" was propagating falsehood and spreading hatred in the society.

"These people (Maoists) take strength from the country's enemies and always malign the nation wherever they go," he charged. 

To establish an anti-national leadership with blind followers solely committed to them is the 'neo-Left' doctrine of these urban Naxals, he said.

Stressing on self-reliance in defence production, he said India cannot be assured about its security without total self-reliance in defence production, he said and added the foreign policy of India has always been peace, tolerance and friendly relations irrespective of governments. 

Without naming Pakistan, he said attacks on borders haven't stopped despite a new government taking over.
