"We struggled for 30 years and in the 30th year, we've attained the joy of fulfilling our resolution", said RSS Sarsanghchalak Dr Mohan Bhagwat after taking part in Ram Mandir Purnarnirman Prarambh Samaroh in Ayodhya.
There are some people who should’ve come but couldn’t be invited because of the Covid-19 situation, he said. “Advani ji must be at his home watching this”, said the Sarsanghchalak at the Ram temple ceremony in Ayodhya.
He said that India believes in ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakam’ i.e world is our guest and that Indians believe in taking everyone along. “Today is a new beginning of a new India,” he added.
Remembering Ashok Singhal and Paramhans Das, Shri Mohan Bhagwat said that (the beginning of temple constructions) proves ‘we can do what we want to do’. “We had taken a resolution. I remember the then RSS chief Balasaheb Deoras telling us that we'll have to struggle for 20-30 years, only then will this be fulfilled. We struggled for 30 years and in the 30th year, we've attained the joy of fulfilling our resolution,” he said.
“There is a wave of joy in the whole country today. It is a pleasure to have centuries of fulfillment. The greatest joy is to make India self-reliant, the self-confidence of which there was a lack of self-realisation is being established today,” Shri Mohan Bhagwat added..
