With pressure now squarely on the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on the issue of Ram temple in Ayodhya, the CM held deliberations with the top brass of the RSS.
CM Yogi Adityanath also held meeting with RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat.
The meeting took place in national capital.
The meeting came a day after Yogi Adityanath had asserted that a Ram temple would be built in Ayodhya.
The Vishva Hindu Parishad, an RSS affiliate, had recently also deliberated upon the Ram temple issue.
The chief minister held talks with RSS executive head Bhaiyyaji Joshi for over two hours and they were later joined by Mohan Bhagwat.
The meeting also assumes significance as the BJP is gearing up for the Lok Sabha elections.
Support of Hindutva organisations will play a key role for the party in Uttar Pradesh, where it is faced with a tough challenge from a likely alliance of SP and BSP.
Some VHP leaders also met Yogi Adityanath. They are in the national capital for its governing council meeting where the Ram temple issue was discussed at length.
