Udupi:

Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday made a strong pitch for building the Ram temple on the disputed site at Ayodhya, saying only the mandir would come up there and not any other structure.

He made the statement while was addressing "Dharma Sansad", a congregation of 2,000 Hindu saints, mutt heads and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) leaders from across the country at Udupi, saying there should be no ambiguity that Ram temple will be built at Ayodhya.

"We will construct it. It is not a populist declaration but a matter of our faith. It will not change," Bhagwat said.

He said that after years of efforts and sacrifice, building the Ram temple seemed possible now, while also noting that the matter was in the court.

"Only Ram Mandir will be constructed and nothing else. It will be constructed on the disputed site only" said Bhagwat.

He said the temple would be constructed in the same grandeur as it existed before, using the "same stones" under the guidance of those who were the flag-bearers of the Ram janmabhoomi movement for the last 25 years.

But prior to building the temple, public awareness was essential. "We are close to achieving our goal but at this juncture, we should be extra cautious”, he said.

Construction of Ram temple, prevention of religious conversions and cow protection are among the key issues to be discussed at the VHP's three-day 'Dharma Sansad'.
