At the same time, we must ensure that a govt having a national viewpoint committed to building SriRamMandir comes again," read a tweet by the RSS.

This comes after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday was greeted with vociferous demands for early construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya as he ended his speech at the Dharam Sansad in Uttar Pradesh's Prayagraj. Several saints, seers and people have been demanding early construction of the Ram temple.A conglomerate of saints on Wednesday said construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya will start on February 21.Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati on Wednesday told ANI that the 'Dharam Sansad', after a three-day meeting here, decided that the foundation stone of the temple will be laid on February 21.
