Mumbai, New Delhi, Jan 15:

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari attended the inauguration of a month-long mass contact and contribution campaign for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, at the Vidarbha office of the Ram temple trust, in Nagpur on Friday.
The programme was organised by the Vidarbha office of the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, set up by the Centre for the construction and management of the Ram temple. The fund collection campaign was launched in the presence of the governor and Hindu Dharm Acharya Sabha president Swami Avadheshnand Giri Maharaj.
It may be recalled that after a protracted legal tussle, the Supreme Court had on November 9, 2019, ruled in favour of the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, and directed the Centre to allot an alternative five-acre plot to the Sunni Waqf Board for building a new mosque at a “prominent” place in Uttar Pradesh.
The disputed structure in Ayodhya was demolished on December 6, 1992, by ‘kar sevaks’ who claimed that an ancient Ram temple stood at the same site. After SC verdict, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the ‘Bhoomi Pujan’ ceremony to begin the construction of the Ram temple on August 5, 2020.
Prez donates Rs 5 lakh
In the meanwhile, President Ram Nath Kovind, on Friday donated Rs 5 lakh in his personal capacity towards the construction of Ram Temple. The President’s contribution came after the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra announced a contribution campaign for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“He is the first citizen of the country so we went to him to initiate this drive. He donated a sum of Rs 5,01,000,” VHP’s Alok Kumar said. The massive contribution drive which began on Friday will continue till February 27.
According to the trust, the iconic structure will be built keeping in mind the country’s ancient construction techniques and will be built to sustain storms, earthquakes and other natural calamities.
