An organization from Mathura has demanded that a statue of Ravana be placed in the Ram temple in Ayodhya. The Lankesh Bhakt Mandal has made this demand in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “The Lokesh Bhakt Mandal will bear the cost of installing the statue,” said Omvir Saraswat, president of the organization. A similar letter has also been sent to the president of Ram Janmabhoomi. Omvir Saraswat said that installing a statue in the Ram temple in Ayodhya would be a true tribute to Ravana.
He said that in the wonderful temple of Lord Rama being built in Ayodhya Dham, now such a magnificent statue of Dashanan should also be placed in Ayodhya. The way the statue of Lord Rama is to be placed. All Lankesh devotees will donate for the construction of Ram temple as well as for the magnificent statue of Lankesh. Let me tell you that Shriram Janmabhoomi Tirth Kshetra Trust is running a nationwide fund raising campaign for the construction of Ram Mandir.
People are participating in this campaign with great enthusiasm and on the other hand the excavation of the foundation for the construction of the temple has been expedited. Earlier, with the help of eminent geologists of the country, the working organization L&T has prepared the basic design. General Secretary of Ram Janmabhoomi Tirth Kshetra Trust Champat Rai is fully satisfied with the design. He says that because of the honesty with which the scientists have done their work, the whole world will accept India’s engineering. It will take 7 months to conduct an underground test before starting construction of the temple. Yet there has been no change in the original timing of the construction of the temple.
He said that from February 2021, the construction of the temple will take 39 months. Manual work is about to happen, so 2-4 percent may change over time, but not more. He believes that the foundation work will be completed by August, after which work on the original temple will resume. The foundation work of the Ram temple has been proposed by the Continuous Raft Stone method. It needs about 4 lakh cubic feet of sandstone.
This sand stone will be brought from Mirzapur. It is said that L&T officials called for samples from there, which were given the green light after testing. This sand is also very hard and conveniently accessible by the count of Banshipahadpur Stone. It was also learned that along with samples of stones from Mirzapur, samples of bricks were also ordered from Ambedkar Nagar. Currently no supply orders have been placed.
