Ayodhya/Nagpur: With Bharatiya Janata Party at helm and Vishwa Hindu Parishad repeatedly asserting its firmness to build the Ram temple, it seems a ‘grand mandir’ in Ayodhya is destined to be constructed soon, with two trucks of stones on Sunday arriving in the temple city.
Confirming the development, VHP spokesman Sharad Sharma said that two trucks of stones have been unloaded at Ram Sewak Puram and Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, the president of Ram Janam Bhumi Nyas, has performed ‘Shila Pujan’ of the stones.
Giving positive signals to the possible construction of the temple, Das said, “Now, the time has come for the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. Lot of stones arrived today in Ayodhya. And now the arrival of stones will continue. We have signals from Modi Government that Mandir construction would be done now.”
Meanwhile, reacting to the arrival of stones at VHP headquarters, Faizabad Senior Superintendent of Police Mohit Gupta said that the police was monitoring the situation.
“We are monitoring all the developments minutely. Stones have arrived and being kept in a private premises. Due to this development, if their was any breach in peace or communal harmony we will definitely take action,” he said.
Earlier this month, VHP leader Praveen Togadia expressed hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would ensure a grand Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya as decided by the BJP national executive and promised in the Lok Sabha elections.
Togadia, the executive international president of VHP, told reporters in Bhopal that a grand temple of Lord Ram would be built at the place where Babri mosque was demolished on December 6, 1992.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has time and again pitched for the construction of a Ram temple at Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya.
