New Delhi: Terming the formation of the Ram Temple Trust as a historic decision, BJP president JP Nadda went on to iterate that Dalit representation goes to show the social harmony that exists.

The BJP president congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi while stating, "Today is a historic day and the dream of every Hindustani has come true. In this Trust, social harmony has been emphasised by representing Dalit society.”

Earlier, speaking in Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the formation of a Trust for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and stated, "We have readied a scheme for the development of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. A Trust has been formed. It is called Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerath Kshetra."

Members of the ruling party shouted slogans of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in praise of the announcement.

Union home minister Amit Shah provided more details on the members of the Trust, which will comprise 15 trustees, one of whom will be from the Dalit community.

The BJP president also congratulated the countrymen for showing strong solidarity.

"The way the country has received and acknowledged the decision of construction of Ram Temple, it showed how strong the fabric of the Indian society is," the BJP president stated.

"According to the court's decision, the Central government had requested the Uttar Pradesh government to give five acres of land to the Sunni Waqf Board, which has also been agreed by the UP government," said the BJP president thanking UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath for granting five acres to the Sunni Waqf board upon the Centre’s request.

The historic verdict of the Supreme Court in November held that disputed land spread over 2.7 acres will be handed over to a Trust formed by the government for the construction of Ram Temple while a 5-acre land will be handed over to the Sunni Waqf board.
