According to Ram Temple trust officials, PM Narendra Modi will proceed to Ram Janmabhoomi or the site of the temple, which thousands of devotees believe was the spot where Lord Ram was born. He will offer prayers to “Ram Lalla” or the idol of infant Ram before going to the stage where the groundbreaking ceremony will take place.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay a 40-kg silver brick to symbolize the start of construction of the Ram Temple that is core to the ruling BJP’s ideology and poll promises. A campaign for the temple marked the rise of the party to the national spotlight in the 1990s.
