New Delhi, Jan 2: The RSS was quick to react to the Prime Minister's comments on the ordinance route and Ram Temple. PM Narendra Modi had said in an interview that an ordinance on the Ram Temple can be brought in only after a Supreme Court ruling.

The RSS while reacting to the statement reminded the PM that he was voted in because the BJP had promised to explore all avenues available in the Constitution to build the Ram Temple.

"The people expect that this government will fulfil its promise of building the Ram temple within its tenure," said Dattatreya Hosabale, Sangh Joint Secretary.
