"Neither BJP nor RSS have faith in Lord Rama and they only want to use (the name of) the diety as a political tool from time to time for electoral benefits which is not acceptable to the people any longer", he told reporters on the sidelines of a function to mark the death anniversary of B R Ambedkar.
Kumar accused the Sangh Parivar of stoking religious sentiments of the people as part of its 'political line' so that the Ram Temple issue should remain alive for political benefits.
In the present case, the temple issue has been raked up as the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls are close by, the Chief Minister said.
Slamming BJP and RSS for its slogan 'Ram Lala Hum Aayenge, Mandir Wahin Banayenge' with his own punchline 'tarikh nahin batayenge', he said now that the people were demanding announcement of the date for the temple construction, BJP and RSS should come up with the specific date from when it will start at Ayodhya.
