As per reports, the VHP has scaled up its preparations for the construction of the much awaited Bhavya Ram Mandir at Ayodhya following recent proclamations made by senior leaders of the RSS and the BJP.
VHP leaders have claimed, as per reports, that 70 trucks will soon arrive in Ayodhya carrying stones. In addition, more artisans are said to have been roped in to carve them into pillars and other structures for the Temple. The procurement is said to be more than four times the amount they had brought in more than a year ago at their Ramjanmabhoomi Mandir Nirman Karyashala (Temple construction workshop).
The scaling up of VHP’s efforts appears to have the approval of its senior brass. “We are not going to step back. This is a battle for the victory of truth. We are just waiting for the Supreme Court order,” VHP’s international vice-president Champat Rai told TOI while asserting that more stones and artisans would be brought in to speed up the work.
Reports stated that there was a heavy police presence in Ayodhya on Tuesday. The road to the temple was closed down. But after the recent announcements, activities in the city have reportedly increased. Pilgrims and visitors have been pouring into the ‘Karsewakpuram’ where the proposed model of the three-storied temple is kept by the VHP.
Recently, at the annual Vijayadashami celebrations at Nagpur, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat urged the NDA government to formulate a law to felicitate the construction of the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya. Soon after, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath had said in Chhattisgarh that Ram Mandir will be built soon.
