Ayodhya Ram Mandir: Union Minister Amit Shah announced opening date

Union Minister Amit Shah has announced that the construction of Ayodhya Ram Mandir will be completed by January 1, 2024 and has clarified that the inauguration ceremony of the temple will be held on that day. Ayodhya Ram Mandir: Union Minister Amit Shah announced opening date.

The Home Minister made the announcement while addressing a public rally today in Tripura. He added that the Congress has been hindering the Ram Temple construction case in courts since independence and the Supreme Court’s verdict on the matter came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power.

“The Ram Temple issue was being stalled by the Congress ever since the independence. It was after when PM Modi came to power that the Supreme Court gave its verdict and the construction of the temple began following a ‘bhoomipujan’,” said Amit Shah.

Notably, the general elections are due in 2024 and the opening of the temple can be a milestone for BJP, which has been in power at the Centre for eight years now. Prime Minister Modi had performed the ‘bhoomi pujan’ for the construction of the temple on August 5, 2020.

According to the plan, temples of Valmiki, Kewat, Shabari, Jatayu, Sita, Vighneshwar (Ganesh) and Sheshavatar (Lakshman) will also be constructed within a 70-acre area in the vicinity of the Ram temple. A rectangular, two-storeyed ‘Parikrama’ road is also being constructed, enclosing a total of eight acres of land including the area of the temple and its courtyard.
