No decision on Lord Rama statue in Ayodhya: UP governor
11 October 2017, 12:30 | Ross Houston
Coming to the latest news, the Yogi Adityanath government has unveiled a plan to set up a 100-metre tall Lord Rama statue in the banks of River Sarayu in Ayodhya.
The plan also comprises of a Ram Katha gallery on the banks of the river, a multi-purpose auditorium in the Digambar Akhara premises and various public utility services. It is being planned as part of the Navya Ayodhya project which is seen as an initiative by the Uttar Pradesh government to promote religious tourism.
The UP government has also sought the approval of the National Green Tribunal for the construction of the project.
The Express reported that the slideshow made at the presentation put the height of the statue at a 100 metres but that "some officials said that wasn't final".
Noting that Diwali is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after winning a war in Lanka, Naik said the state government wants to portray the same scene.
After a presentation by Tourism Principal Secretary, Awanish Awasthi, the proposal has been sent to Governor Ram Naik.
The installation of the Lord Rama statue is just one of the several steps the UP government is planning to take to promote tourism in Ayodhya, the birth place of Lord Rama. The central government has sanctioned Rs 130 crore for this objective, and a "chitra" (image) is being prepared , As Reported By TOI.
Ever since the BJP began its victory march at the hustings with its victory in the May 2014 general elections and following it up with a landslide mandate in Uttar Pradesh earlier this year, the party's efforts of reviving its narrative for building a grand Ram Temple at the site where its leaders led a mob to demolish the Babri Masjid in 1992 have accelerated.
"On Diwali, a grand programme will be held in Ayodhya in which sadhu-saints will also participate".
Mr. Awasthi said the Tourism Department would also develop the Ram Katha Gallery, fix ghats, especially Guptar Ghat, where Lord Ram is believed to have taken a jal samadhi, develop a statue of Rani Ho, and install security features such as CCTVs.
