Sources here on Sunday said that the PM could attend the “Bhumi Pujan” Programme in Ayodhya on August 5.
 
According to the schedule, the PM will be here for 90 minutes between 1100 hours and 1310 hours on August 5.
 
According to the sources, rituals related to the “Bhoomi Poojan” of the Ram temple will begin at 0800 hours on August 5.
 
The “Bhoomi Poojan” will be done by priests from Kashi and some priests from Varanasi, which is also the Parliamentary constituency of PM.
 
UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, along with the members of the Trust and some Union Ministers, could attend the ceremony.
 
On Saturday, Shri Ramjanmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust members agreed on two dates--August 3 and August 5- for “Bhoomi Poojan” of the temple. The PMO was asked to decide on the dates as per the convenience of the PM.
 
General Secretary of the Trust Champat Rai had said after the meeting that after the Monsoon season, the Ram Temple trust would contact 10 crore families across the country for financial help and it will take three to three-and-half years after the finalisation of the temple’s design to complete its construction.
 
The grand Ram Temple will be of 161 feet height while there will be 5 domes instead of 3 domes which was decided earlier. (UNI)
