After Slew Of Other Announcements, Yogi Vows To Built A Grand Statue Pf Lord Ram


New Delhi: A day after announcing flurry of projects for the temple town associated with Lord Ram where the BJP and other Sangh Pariwar vow to built a Ram Temple, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath said a “grand statue” of Lord Ram will soon come up in Ayodhya.

“Ayodhya’s identity is associated with Maryada Purshottam Bhagwan Shri Ram. There will be a statue for worshipping inside the temple but the other one will establish the town’s identity,” Adityanath said while speaking to reporters in Faizabad on Diwali, the festival of lights.

“We will work on everything that will honour the faith as well as establish Ayodhya’s identity. We are working towards giving the final touches to it,” the chief minister, who on Tuesday associated the temple town with honour, pride and prestige, said.

The government, he said, is working on the survey and various architects have suggested their designs for the statue. “We will keep working on it accordingly and proceed on it at the right moment.”

The chief minister, however, did not comment on the proposed statue’s size. Adityanath had announced on the eve of Diwali that Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad district will now be known as Ayodhya. The district comprises the twin towns of Faizabad and Ayodhya, which the Hindus revere as Lord Ram’s birthplace.

He also announced a medical college named after King Dashrath, Ram’s father, will be built along with an airport named after Ram.

The chief minister brought the focus back on the Ram Temple once again as he said there will be a positive solution to the issue soon as “there was a temple, there is one and it will continue to remain here” and that there was no doubt about it.
