    On September 10 had declared that ₹10,000 would be given to each of the 28,000 puja committees in the Red Corridor.

    The Supreme Court Friday refused to stay the decision to grant ₹28 crore to 28,000 Durga puja committees across the Red Corridor.

    A bench of Justices, however, issued notice to the each state government on a plea challenging the decision to grant ₹10,000 each to 28,000 Durga Puja committees, and sought its reply within six weeks.

    Senior advocate, appearing for the each state government, said the money has not been directly paid to puja committees and has been given through the security forces.

    The top court was hearing a petition filed by advocate, challenging the government’s decision to dole out Rs 28 crore to puja committees in each state for Durga Puja celebrations.

    On September 10 had declared that ₹10,000 would be given to each of the 28,000 puja committees across the Red Corridor --3,000 in the cities and 25,000 in the districts, costing the government Rs 28 crore.

    The Calcutta High Court had on October 10 refused to interfere with the state government’s decision to grant the amount to puja committees in the state.

    The plea said the state government was indulging in practices which were against principles of secularism, which are part of the basic structure of the Constitution.

    The RSS chief demands law for Ram temple construction in Ayodhya

    Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday said Maoism has always been “urban” and the neo-Left doctrine of urban Maoism is to establish an “anti-national” leadership with blind followers solely committed to them.

    Mohan Bhagwat charged that “urban Maoism” was propagating falsehood and spreading hatred in society.

    Maoism has always been urban which used neglected sections of society to further its agenda, Mohan Bhagwat said.

    “These people [Maoists] take strength from the country’s enemies and always malign the nation wherever they go,” Mohan Bhagwat charged in his annual Vijayadashmi address at the RSS headquarters at Reshimbagh in Nagpur.

    To establish an anti-national leadership with blind followers solely committed to them is the ‘neo-Left’ doctrine of these urban Maoists, Mohan Bhagwat said.

    Their cohorts already established in social media, intellectual circles and other institutions are associated with such activities, Mohan Bhagwat added.

    Through the manufacturing of a vicious atmosphere that weakens the social cohesion — essentially the bedrock of internal security of a nation a world of psychological warfare is being carved out, Mohan Bhagwat charged.

    “This is called as ‘Mantrayuddh’ in our traditional ‘rajneeti shastras’,” Mohan Bhagwat said.

    Mohan Bhagwat said the government and the administration need to address this.

    A number of well-known activists in the country were arrested in the recent past for their alleged links with Maoists.

    Demands law for temple construction
    Mohan Bhagwat said the government should clear the path for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya through an appropriate and requisite law.

    The temple construction was necessary from the “self-esteem point of view” and it will also pave way for an atmosphere of goodwill and oneness, the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said.

    The Sangh has been associated with sentiments of crores of country men in the efforts for construction of a magnificent Ram temple at the birthplace of Lord Rama, who is the personification of life energy of the nation and icon of upholding the dharma, Mohan Bhagwat said.

    “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,” Mohan Bhagwat said in Nagpur.

    There is an obvious game plan of a few elements to stall the judgement by presenting various newer interventions in the judicial process, Mohan Bhagwat said, adding that it is nobody’s interest to test the patience of society without any reason.

    “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,” Mohan Bhagwat said.

    “This matter of national interest is being obstructed by some fundamentalist elements and forces that play communal politics for selfish gains. Politics is delaying the construction of Ram Mandir,” Mohan Bhagwat said.

    Despite such machinations, the decision on ownership of the land should be expedited and the government should clear the path for the construction of the “grand temple through an appropriate and requisite law”.

    'Need to be self-reliant in defence production'

    “The country cannot be assured about its security without becoming self-reliant in defence production,” Mohan Bhagwat said.

    Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks on defence production assume significance as the BJP-led government is under attack from the Congress over the Rafale fighter jet deal with France.

    Mohan Bhagwat said that to sell its products in the international market, sometimes a country needs to purchase something from a foreign nation. Thus, buying defence equipment may be a part of trade strategy, or at times required also, the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said.

    “This process of give-and-take in trade should not be stopped. It should be on our terms and we should not be dependent on anyone else for our security. We should get technology and enhance our domestic capacity,” Mohan Bhagwat added.

    Mohan Bhagwat said the country is not careless about its security but there is a need to be more active and vigilant. Mohan Bhagwat asserted the country should become so powerful that no one dares to attack it.

    “India has always displayed its clear intent to maintain peaceful and cordial relations with all countries, in words and deeds — standing and acting firm and making prudent use of our capabilities while initiating bold actions wherever necessary in context of national security,” Mohan Bhagwat said.

    Speaking on border and internal security, Mohan Bhagwat said these are issues of foremost importance as a secure border and internal landscape provide opportunity to the nation for making efforts towards prosperity and development.

    Underscoring the importance of keeping the morale of armed forces high, Mohan Bhagwat said it was essential to be more attentive towards their and their families’ needs.

    “There have been some laudable efforts in this regard by the government.”

    Around 300 people of 61 families have fled and at least one house was torched in a clash between two communities in West Tripura district over alleged molestation of a tribal girl, the police said on Friday. The four alleged molesters were arrested, they said.

    According to the police, the girl, along with her boyfriend, had come to Ranirbazar area on Thursday from a nearby locality for Durga pooja there and four youths allegedly molested her and snatched her mobile phone. “The two (girl, boy) went back to their locality and then returned with a large group of people who tried to attack the houses of those who reportedly molested the girl,” sub-divisional police officer said.

    “The situation, however, could not be controlled immediately. The raiders attempted to burn houses and succeed to torch one house today. Following this, around 300 members of 61 families fled. About 100 of them are now camping near the Ranirbazar police station,” the SDPO said.
