Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray is urging the government to bring legislation or an ordinance for building the temple on the disputed site in Ayodhya, but he has not linked his own two-day visit to VHP event.
Thackeray said his party will support any legislation or ordinance for the Ram Mandir, which Hindutva organisations want to be constructed at the site where the Babri Masjid was demolished in 1992.
He went to the banks of the Saryu river in the evening to offer prayers.
The Sena claimed to have brought several thousand supporters to Ayodhya for Thackeray's events.
