20 transgenders from Rajasthan have donated lakhs of rupees towards the construction of Ram temple
Bengaluru: The fund collection for the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is going on in full swing. From the President of India to many others, they have contributed their might.
Now, as per reports, 20 transgenders from Rajasthan have donated lakhs of rupees for the cause.
They add that it is an emotional moment of their life as they maintained that centuries ago Lord Rama had blessed that Kalyug will usher in good times for them.
They are also of the firm belief that such a contribution will earn them merit.
A Swarajya report added that Rekha Buaji, a transgender from Mewar region donated Rs 5,111,11 for the construction of the holy shrine.
It quoted her as saying: “This is a historic moment and hence people from all sections of the society should connect with each other to contribute to the temple's construction. I pray to God that entire Bharat stands united for the construction. I wish Lord Rama showers his blessings for a prosperous India”.
It was in November 2019 that the Supreme Court of India decreed that the land under litigation belongs to Hindus. The court also asked the government to form a committee to oversee the construction.
It was in August last year, on the first occasion of abrogation of articles 370 and 35A that Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed the bhumi pujan at Ayodhya.
Presently, the construction is in progress and will take an estimated time period of 36-40 months. The total costs come up to Rs 1100 crore.
A few days ago, President Ram Nath Kovind gave a donation of Rs 5 lakh.
The deputy chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya has also contributed his salary of 30 months towards the construction of the temple.
Apart from his contribution, he also gave a cheque for Rs 1.01 crore for the same, which happens to be the contribution of PWD employees.
“I am happy that Ram Mandir is finally being constructed. The cooperation of the entire nation is being sought for the construction of Ram temple as five generations have sacrificed their lives in the temple movement. In such a situation, this cooperation is being taken from everyone,” he said.
