Thousands of VHP, Shiv Sena and RSS workers have descended upon Ayodhya for 'Dharam Sabha', for immediate construction of Ram temple on the disputed land.

VHP leader Rai said they won't agree on division demands for whole land. ''Batware ka formula na majur, hume to chaiye puri jamin,' said Rai attending don't test our patient. 'Humare sabra ka intehan na lein,' said Rai.
Meanwhile, BJP questions Uddhav Thackeray's push for constructing Ram Temple in Ayodhya and said Shiv Sena had no role in the temple movement and Thackeray walked here for elections benefit.
“Everyone's going there due to elections. Who stopped Uddhav Thackeray from going there in past 4-5 years? On one hand, they're friends with BJP&on the other they want to tell people they're interested in constructing Ram Temple & are pressurising government. People won't be befooled, said BJP leader M Kharge.

Also, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya Sunday disapproved of the Shiv Sena's push for constructing a Ram temple in Ayodhya. “There is no problem in Uddhav Thackeray catching a glimpse of Ram Lalla... But, had Balasaheb Thackeray been alive, he would have prevented Uddhav from doing whatever he is doing,” Maurya told PTI.
However, Uddhav Thackeray demanding Ram Temple warned BJP government to construct a temple or won't come in power again. “Today's government is very powerful. If the temple is not constructed now, this government will not come into power. The Ram temple will still be built.
