Ayodhya: Ram Lalla idol shifted to temporary structure to allow temple construction

Adityanath in his personal capacity also donated ₹11 lakh for the construction of the Ram temple

While the polarisation of minorities was visible and a topic of debate, the aggressive polarisation of Hindutva went unnoticed till it began taking violent manifestations affecting the pluralistic nature of the society.

The Ram Lalla idol here was shifted to a temporary new location on early Wednesday (March 25) morning in the presence of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, clearing the site to allow construction of a Ram temple.

The idol of Ram Lalla was placed on a 9.5-kg silver throne in the new structure where the idol would remain till the construction of the Ram temple is completed on the site, allotted for it by the Supreme Court in a landmark verdict in November.

After the idol was placed, the chief minister offered special prayers in the presence of Ram Mandir Trust Secretary Champat Rai. Adityanath in his personal capacity also donated ₹11 lakh for the construction of the Ram temple.
