Saints associated with Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas are mulling to launch a movement at the upcoming Maha Kumbh Mela to press the government for construction of a temple at
Ayodhya, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said today and assured his organisation's full support to it.
Bhagwat was in the city to take part in a RSS function.
Speaking at the function he said, "The government should pass a bill in Parliament paving way for the construction of a grand temple in
But the possibility of passage of a bill for the purpose is bleak and we will support the movement being contemplated by a high-powered committee of saints.
"In the next Maha Kumbh, saints are thinking to launch a campaign so that a pressure could be built up for construction of temple in
Ayodhya," Bhagwat said.
RSS will extend its support to the movement and our cadre will work with full strength to covert it in into a mass movement, he said.
The matter is still pending in Supreme Court and chances are that it will not be resolved soon, Bhagwat said adding that both the communities should contribute in building the temple.
Meanwhile, replying to a query, Bhagwat claimed the political parties in Assam and other north-eastern states have not taken any steps against illegal Bangladeshi immigrants to protect their "vote banks".
The RSS chief said that these immigrants were behind some of the major terror attacks in the country.
Bhagwat demanded the Centre and state governments to take steps to check the border, detect the illegal immigrants and deport them to Bangladesh.
