Ayodhya (UP), Jun 1 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday performed the ‘Shila Pujan’ of the sanctum sanctorum of Lord Ram temple amid Vaidik rituals and chants of mantra in Ayodhya.
With this Yogi inaugurated the construction work of the sanctum sanctorum of Lord Ram temple.
Speaking on the occasion, Yogi said finally the 500 years of continuous ‘Sadhna’ (perseverance) is turning into ‘Siddhi’ (Success).
He said, “The Shila Pujan of the sanctum sanctorum is a key milestone towards the swift construction of the grand temple of Lord Shri Ram in Ayodhya. It will not only be a ‘National Temple’, but will also become a force to bind the nation in one thread under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ campaign.”
Terming it to be a proud moment for every Indian, Yogi said, “The invaders attacked the faith of Indians with nefarious intentions and malicious intent and shattered the dreams of our country, but ultimately, India has emerged victorious. The significance of Satyamev Jayate has been proved once again.”
He acknowledged the struggle of revered saints and the former former international working president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Ashok Singhal and the efforts of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and lakhs of its workers in making the grand construction of the Lord Ram temple a reality.
The CM said, “If we follow the path of righteousness and truth, no one can stop us from being victorious. The construction of a grand temple in Ayodhya is underway. Today, any devotee or tourist, who comes to Ayodhya Dham, feels blessed to see the grand form of the temple being constructed here.”
He said, “Even when the PM had laid the foundation stone of Lord Ram’s temple, I had said that our generation is fortunate to see the temple being constructed.”
Bowing down to the great men who made sacrifices in the struggle for the construction of the temple, Yogi stated that the struggle had been completed, and now it was time for people to join the construction.
