Ayodhya: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called the Ram temple construction dawn of a new era, saying centuries of wait has finally ended. PM Modi addressed devotees after he performed bhoomi pujan rituals at the Ram Janmabhoomi Sthal to mark the beginning of the construction of Ram Mandir. The landmark event comes a year after the Supreme Court ordered for the construction of Ram Mandir at the once disputed site of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the first brick for the construction of Ram Mandir. Ayodhya has become a fortress with extreme security measures and all entry points to the temple town have been blocked. Not only Ayodhya, security has been tightened across several states and cities in India in view of the bhoomi pujan ceremony amid the ongoing lockdown.

Beginning his speech with the slogan of “Jai Siya Ram,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi called it a historic occasion. “I am grateful to witness history being made. Crores of Indians cannot believe that this day has come. The entire country is in the spell of Lord Ram.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi today laid down a silver brick to mark the foundation ceremony of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Modi was among the 175 people present at the ceremony. He shared the dais with just four other people — RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, trust chief Nritya Gopaldas Maharaj, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, and CM Yogi Adityanath. Keeping in mind the pandemic, seating arrangements were made in accordance with social distancing principles. Before this, the prime minister along with Adityanath had offered prayers at Hanuman Garhi. Modi also paid a visit to Ram Janmabhoomi. Remembering the sacrifices made in the struggle, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat remembered LK Advani and said many are present in spirit at the ceremony. Calling it an “auspicious day,” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister hailed the achievements of PM Modi. “This marks the end of the struggle of decades. A journey of over 500 years has been ratified by the Indian judiciary and constitution,” he said.
