Lucknow, Nov 10: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is set to attend the consecration ceremony of the Lord Ram Lala idol at the newly constructed Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya.

The senior functionaries of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust formally extended an invitation to the Chief Minister during a meeting at his residence on Friday.

After the meeting, Yogi Adityanath expressed his sentiments on social media, stating, “Today, life has become truly blessed. My heart is filled with happiness. I extend my gratitude to the respected officials of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust, Swami Govinddev Giri Maharaj, Champat Rai, and Rajendra Pankaj for inviting me to the consecration program of the new idol of Lord Shri Ramlala Sarkar in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Temple. Jai Jai Sitaram!”

The Goraksh Peeth has maintained a continuous association with the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya. During the British colonial period, Mahant Digvijaynath played a crucial role in raising the issue of the Shri Ram Temple.

Following his demise, Mahant Avedyanath embraced his Gurudev’s resolve, initiating a decisive struggle for the construction of the Shri Ram Temple. In 1984, when the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya Committee was formed in Valmiki Bhawan, Ayodhya, Mahant Avedyanath was unanimously elected as the president.

He continued to serve as the president of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mukti Yagya Committee throughout his life.

The consecration ceremony, scheduled for Paush Shukla Dwadashi, Vikram Samvat 2080 (Jan 22, 2024), will witness the presence of over 4,000 saints from across the country and 2,500 eminent personalities. The event holds immense significance and will be held with the blessings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
