AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi today criticised chief for his comment that only a Ram temple would be built at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

Owaisi said Bhagwat had no authority to make such an "announcement".

"Who gave permission to that he announced in 'Dharm Sansad' that only a Ram temple would be built there and nothing else? Who is

"If you are saying so to intimidate us, remember that we cannot be intimidated," the MP from said.

Owaisi was speaking at a meeting held in connection with the anniversary of the demolition of the Babri mosque at Ayodhya on December 6, 1992.

Speaking at a congregation of Hindu saints, mutt heads and VHP leaders at the 'Dharm Sansad' (of religion) at Udupi in late last month, Bhagwat made a strong pitch for building a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

The chief said only a temple would come up at the site and not any other structure.
