New Delhi: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat statements and call for a law to build Ram Temple in Ayodhya indicates the growing power within the party and its hold on BJP party, TOI reports.
RSS hold on the saffron party can lead it to power to win the upcoming elections for the second time in a row.
This proposed law by RSS to construct Ram temple on the disputed land would have been made a legislation four years back if the party had enough numbers of members in Rajya Sabha.
But the matter only got delayed due to lack of members. Saffron party had never waited for acceptance from opposition parties or other parties when it comes to making a legislation unlike other laws passed by the cabinet, this is a completely different matter and could have been easily challenged in the nation’s top court as the title suit is still pending.
This time the saffron party will play the temple card to win majority votes with their political argument that the harm done to Hindu interests needs to be corrected and the construction of a mandir will restore the “national esteem”.
But BJP is well aware that polarising cultural issues alone will not work to win the elections for the second time and thus the government has carefully launched a bunch of ambitious welfare measures to expand its social base.
