(G.N.S) Dt. 5
PM Narendra Modi today performed the ‘bhoomi pujan,’ or ceremonial stone laying ceremony for the Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya. UP CM Adityanath, UP Governor Anandiben Patel, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
Dressed in the traditional kurta and dhoti, PM Modi offered prayers at the Hanuman Garhi temple soon after landing in the riverside town of Ayodhya from Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow. Anil Mishra, member of Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirth Kshetra Trust, said this puja was performed to “seek Lord Hanuman’s permission to start construction work of Ram Mandir”.
PM Narendra Modi addresses the nation and gathering from Ayodhya:-
I express gratitude to all citizens of this nation, Indian diaspora across the world and all the devotees of Lord Ram on today’s pious occasion. Today marks the culmination of years of resolve, dedication and struggle.
History is not just being created today, it is also repeating itself. Ram Mandir will be a modern symbol of our culture and nationalist feelings.’Jai Siyaram’ resonating not only in the city of Lord Ram but throughout the world today.
From Kanyakumari to Kshirbhavani, Koteshwar to Kamakhya, Jagannath to Kedarnath, Somnath to Kashi Vishwanath- entire country is immersed in Lord Ram today
Ram is omnipresent, belongs to all humanity. Lord Ram had taught that motherland is even greater than paradise for its people. There has been no ruler as idealistic as Ram in the history of the world
I believe that this grand Ram temple, like the name of Shri Ram, will reflect the rich heritage of Indian culture. I believe it will inspire the entire humanity till eternit
The wait of centuries has ended and India is creating a golden chapter in Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday after performing the ‘bhoomi pujan’ of a Ram temple here. “Many people made sacrifices for the Ram temple. I pay my respects to all of them,” the prime minister said after the ground-breaking ceremony of the temple at the spot where many devout Hindus believe Lord Ram was born.
PM Narendra Modi launched a commemorative postal stamp on the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir. Earlier a struggle of 492 years today (5 August) came to fruition for millions of Ram Bhakts across the world as Prime Minister Modi fulfilled the Ram Mandir’s Bhoomi Pujan at 12:44pm.
“Our country believes in ‘Vasudev Kutubhkam’ i.e. World is One Family. We believe in taking everyone along. Today is a new beginning of a new India,: Bhagwat said. “So many people had sacrificed, they couldn’t be here physically. There are some who couldn’t come here, Advani ji must be at his home watching this. There are some who should have come but could not be invited because of the situation (COVID-19),” he added. There is a wave of joy in the whole country today and it is a pleasure to have centuries of fulfilment, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat said.
