Ayodhya relives 'Ramayan' days; people throng shops with TV sets to watch Ram Mandir 'bhoomi poojan'
Many recalled that these scenes were similar to ones quite common in late 1980s when 'Ramayan' serial was telecast on Doordarshan and people used to gather at few houses and shops having TV sets.
Let Ram's concern for the people, responding to their problems and his large heartedness become an inspiration for today's public representatives, Kumaraswamy said.
After the groundbreaking rituals, Modi unveiled a plaque to mark the laying of the foundation stone and also released a commemorative postage stamp on 'Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir'.
The 'bhoomi pujan' would be telecast live on various TV channels as well. The Delhi BJP chief said that the party workers should watch the event and inspire others to watch it too.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on August 5.
On November 9, 2019, the five-judge bench headed by former CJI Ranjan Gogoi had delivered the verdict in the long-pending Ayodhya dispute case.
