new Delhi: On August 5 in Ayodhya Ram Mandir Those who are being invited for the ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ ceremony include senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat. The event will be telecast live by Doordarshan. The trustees of the temple gave this information on Sunday.
Anil Mishra, a member of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust told that apart from these, there is an idea to invite spiritual leaders of all religions.
He said that following the rule of maintaining social distance in view of Coronavirus epidemic, a limited number of about 200 people will be called in the program. He said that the list is yet to be finalized.
Mishra said that many people who were part of the temple movement are being invited, including BJP leaders LK Advani, Murali Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti.
Another trustee of the temple, Kameshwar Chaupal, said that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and general secretary Suresh Bhaiyaji Joshi are also being invited to the event along with VHP working president Alok Kumar.
According to the members of the trust, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to come to Ayodhya to lay the foundation stone of Ram temple. Chaupal said that soil is being collected from all the major places of worship including Gurudwaras, Buddhist and Jain temples for ‘Bhoomi Pujan’.
Trust general secretary Champat Rai said that this would be the ‘most important’ program in the history of independent India. He said that the program will be broadcast live by Doordarshan and other channels.
He appealed to the devotees of Lord Rama to celebrate on this occasion instead of coming to Ayodhya in nearby temples or their own homes.
