RSS chief demands population policy, return of temple assets

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) sarsanghchalak (chief) Mohan Bhagwat, on Friday called for returning all temple properties controlled by governments to Hindu society and also reiterated its demand for a population policy to take care of what it terms as “demographic imbalance” caused by various factors, media reports said.

Bhagwat was addressing RSS volunteers at the annual Vijayadashmi programme here.

Bhagwat observed that most Hindu temples in south India are controlled by the government. “Many temples in India are also run by trusts. In both the cases, we find instances of a good and bad management,” he said.
