The Shiva Sena has said that former CJI Ranjan Gogoi should also be invited
Bengaluru: As the date for the bhumi puja of Ram temple at Ayodhya is finalised, the Shiva Sena has said that former CJI Ranjan Gogoi should also be invited.
It is to be noted that it was under him that the decades-old case was finally resolved.
Along with the PM, Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and even Advani are expected to be present at the event.
The Shiva Sena has also recalled the important role played by Shiva Sainiks in the long journey of the case.
Interestingly, as the Shiva Sena appears gung-ho about the project, its coalition partner in Maharashtra, NCP’s chief Sharad Pawar had expressed his reservations about the event. Correlating it with the current pandemic, he had said it was not needed at this point in time.
Pawar had said, "We are all thinking of how to fight the battle against Coronavirus but some people think that coronavirus will be mitigated by building a temple. But our priority is to see how to improve the economy which has been affected due to lockdown."
But contrary to his attitude, reports add that Shiva Sena chief and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray would be in attendance.
Details of the structure:
A popular website quoted that, as per the proposed model of Gujarat architect Chandrakant Sompura, the Ram Mandir, to be built on 2.75 lakh cubic metre area, will be two-storeyed. With a length of 270 metres, a width of 140 feet and height will be 128 feet, the temple with 330 beams and 212 pillars on both the floors will have five doors.
Five parts of the temple:
The temple will be divided in five parts - Garbhgriha, Kauli, Rang Mandap, Nritya Mandap and Singh Dwar.
The main gate will be made of white Makrana marble. A 16.3-foot-tall cell will be constructed above the Garbhgriha on which a 65.3-foot-tall tower will be constructed.
The stones being carved from the last 25 years will be used in the construction of the temple along with Shri Ram stones with artwork.
The Ram Mandir trust has 15 members in it. It has not just religious persons, but civil members and even bureaucrats in it. The office of the trust is in Greater Kailash. The address coincidentally is that of K Parasaran, the advocate who represented Ram Lalla in the Supreme Court.
