PM Narendra Modi to lay the foundation stone of temple on August 5.
The city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh is all set to host the much awaited bhoomi pujan of the Ram temple on August 5. In the lead up to the day, preparations in the city are in full swing, even as authorities are busy ensuring that everything goes according to plan on the said day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present at the foundation laying ceremony, so security forces have started checking vehicles at main entrance points to make sure nothing untoward happens.
On August 5, PM Modi is expected to lay the foundation stone of the Ram temple at 12:15 p.m. Since the event is taking place amidst the pandemic, entry into the city from neighbouring locations is already banned. Ahead of the ceremony though, a priest at the makeshift Ram temple on the site has tested positive for coronavirus, along with 14 policemen who are engaged in duty near the temple complex.
