Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, performed a ‘Shila Pujan’ of the sanctum sanctorum of the Ram temple on Wednesday, saying the temple will be a symbol of people’s faith.
In the presence of the Ram temple trust, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, and others, he laid the foundation for the sanctum sanctorum.
“This temple will serve as a symbol of the people’s faith. It will be a ‘Rashtra mandir,’ and construction will begin immediately. “The 500-year ‘tadpan’ (unrest) of devotees will come to an end, and we will have a temple here,” Adityanath declared.
Earlier, Maurya stated that the first phase of the Ram temple building is complete, and that the second phase will begin after the sanctum sanctorum’s foundation is laid.
“Following the Supreme Court’s judgment, work on the Ram Janmabhoomi temple began. The chief minister will lay the foundation stone for the second phase of the temple construction when the first phase is completed, he said. The minister went on to say that it was a joyous day for Lord Ram followers.
