The trust has sent two likely dates of August 3 and 5 to the PMO for PM Modi to lay the foundation stone of the temple. The PM is expected to spend around 3-4 hours on that day in Ayodhya. He is also expected to visit Saryu Poojan and Hanumangarhi during his Ayodhya visit.
The PM is also expected to meet some of the prominent saints of Ayodhya and also with th members of the Trust.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will also be present on the occasion. Some influential Ministers from the Modi cabinet and UP government will also be present during PM’s Ayodhya.
Besides the PM, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat will also be present on the occasion of the beginning of temple construction. According to sources, the construction at Ramjanmbhoomi is likely to begin in August.
While the temple construction ceremony was supposed to be celebrated with many Union Ministers, Chief Ministers and other important dignitaries in attendance, the list of attendees after COVID-19 spread is likely to have only Prime Minister Modi, Bhagwat, UP Chief Minister, few Ministers and MPs from the region, sources said.
The members of temple trust mandated by the Supreme Court stated that while the programme of ` Shilanyas’ has been done at `Singh Dwara`, it was not a proper ceremony.
“Bhoomi Pujan will be done at Garbh Griha to begin temple construction. This is the formal beginning of temple construction for which invites have been sent out,” the source added.
The construction of a grand Ram temple at the Janmabhoomi of Lord Ram has been a defining issue for the Bharatiya Janata Party as it has been on the manifesto of the party for over two decades.
The Ramjanmabhoomi Trust was formed by the Central Government after the Supreme Court of India directive regarding it on November 9 last year.
