The construction of the grand temple at Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya resumed after getting halted during the earlier lockdown. The temple is being constructed after witnessing an almost 3 decades wait till the Supreme Court verdict came last year.
Due to the pandemic enforced lockdown the construction work was halted. Now, since construction activities are allowed in the state of Uttar Pradesh since the midst of lockdown 2.0 the construction has now begun. Before Thursday only 4 workers were doing the work.
The first phase of work started for laying the foundation of the grand Ram Temple. The clearing of the site is underway now. On Thursday metal barricades erected around the makeshift temple and the CRPF camp at the site were removed. This was done to begin the leveling of the site.
‘The idol of Lord Ram has been shifted to its new abode and now we are getting the site for temple construction cleared and cleaned by removing barricades and leveling the ground. Soil testing will also be done to test soil strength. The trust members are holding meetings through video calls and are remaining updated on the progress of work “, said Champat Rai, secretary of the Shri Ram Teerth Kshetra Trust. The Trust is overseeing temple construction.
Mr. Rai also informed that the office of the trust in Ram Kutcheri temple would soon be completed. Engineers of Larsen&Toubro in coordination with the local team of PWD officials are working on the project. Larsen&Toubro is working on a no-profit, no-loss basis on the temple construction project.
