Ram temple: Bhagwat remembers Advani's struggle; Yogi says credit goes to PM Modi

Ayodhya: Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat, who attended the 'Bhumi Pujan' ceremony for Ram Mandir along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that several people made sacrifices for the temple in Ayodhya and now with the construction work starting there is a wave of joy across the country.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while welcoming the guests after the 'Bhumi Pujan' ceremony, said that the 'Bhumi Pujan' for the construction of the Ram temple was possible solely due to the efforts made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Addressing a gathering in Ayodhya, Bhagwat said, "So many people sacrificed their lives, but they could not be present here physically." Bhagwat said that the RSS had taken the cause for the Ram Mandir.

"I remember that then RSS chief Balasaheb Deoras telling us that we shall have to struggle for 20-30 years, only then will this be fulfilled."

"We struggled for 30 years and in the 30th year, we have now attained the joy of fulfilling our resolution," Bhagwat said.

Remembering BJP veteran L.K. Advani, who could not attend the 'Bhumi Pujan' ceremony in Ayodhya, the RSS chief said, "There are many who could not be physically present today due to the global pandemic, but they are present in spirit. I am sure all of them, including Advani ji, would be watching the event from his home and will be glad today to see their dream come true."

Bhagwat further said that there is a "wave" of joy in the whole country today.

The RSS leader also hailed the Prime Minister for taking bold steps for making the country self reliant. He stressed that everyone should take a vow to make India self reliant.

He also said that India believes in 'Vasudev Kutubhkam', i.e. World is One Family. "We believe in taking everyone along. Today is a new beginning of a new India," Bhagwat said.

He also emphasised on making Ayodhya beautiful and said that the work for the Ram temple has started and we are eager for the completion of the temple.

Earlier in the day, Modi performed the Bhumi Pujan for Ram temple in Ayodhya and laid the first brick. Modi first performed 'aarti' and offered prayers at the Hanuman Garhi temple and also offered his prayers at the Ram Lalla temple in Ayodhya.

Credit for Ram Temple goes to PM Modi, says Yogi
 
Welcoming the guests after the 'Bhumi Pujan' ceremony, the UP CM Yogi Adityanath said that the centuries old struggle for the temple was taken to its logical conclusion by the Modi government.

"The 'Bhumi Pujan' will not only mark the beginning of the construction of the Ram temple but also 'Ram Rajya' as envisaged by the Prime Minister. We started the 'Deepotsav' programme three years ago to give the people a feel of Ram Rajya and we also worked alongside for beautification and development of Ayodhya that will now emerge as one of the most prosperous religious destinations. The Prime Minister has already earmarked projects for the Ramayana circuit," he said.

Yogi Adityanath said that due to the pandemic, very limited number of people could be invited for the 'Bhumi Pujan'.

"But I welcome all those who wanted to come and are now watching the ceremony from their homes," he said and added that this was the beginning of a new India.
