Yogi Adityanath proposes Ram statue in Ayodhya
New Delhi : Confirming last year’s announcement, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced that Ayodhya will get a lord Ram statue that will become the identity of the place.
"There will be a statue of Lord Ram here that would be a tourist attraction. Its particulars will be decided according to the land," Yogi Adityanath said in Ayodhya, where he had gone for Diwali celebrations last evening.
"The statue will be placed indoors, inside a temple. It will be a grand statue and it will become a signpost for Ayodhya," the Chief Minister added in an indication that this will be another mega project like the Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat.
Talking over disputed Ram temple, Mr CM said, "The temple was here and will be here but whatever happens will be within the parameters of the Constitution".
The government is still looking for appropriate land to setup the statue that is likely to be built with partial crowd funding.
