Ayodhya: The first meeting of Ram Temple Trust ended on Wednesday after a two hour discussion in Delhi’s Greater Kailash – the residence of K Parasaran, senior advocate who was appointed as the head of the trust by the Centre.
During the meeting, the temple trust elected Mahant Nritya Gopal Das as president, Champat Rai as general secretary and Govind Giri as treasurer of the Ram Mandir Trust.
However, the trust has not finalised a date for the construction and therefore it has established a Nirman Samiti, which will be led by retired IAS officer, Nripendra Mishra.
“After 15 days, this trust will meet again in Ayodhya, then we will be in a position to announce the date of the construction,” a source in the trust said.
An account in State Bank Of India will also be opened in Ayodhya branch for the Ram Temple construction.
The Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust has seven members, five nominated members and three trustees. The trust was formed in adherence to the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute in November last year.
