While addressing the gathering of dignitaries and VVIPs in the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple premises, he said, “Today, I also apologise to Lord Shri Ram. There must be something lacking in our effort, sacrifice and penance that we could not do this work for so many centuries. Today the work has been completed. I believe that Lord Shri Ram will definitely forgive us today...”

He further said that Ram Lalla now would not stay in a tent as the grand temple is ready.

“Ram Lalla will not stay in a tent now. He will stay in the grand temple. The sunrise of January 22 has brought a wonderful glow. January 22, 2024, is not a date written on the calendar. It is the origin of a new time cycle,” he said.

PM Modi along with Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, and Chairman of Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Trust Mahant Nritya Gopal Das participated in pran pratishtha ceremony.
