Saints from across the country will converge in Ayodhya on June 3 to discuss the construction of the Ram temple at a meeting convened by the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas, a body of saints that spearheads the Ram Mandir movement and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), a right wing Hindu organisation.
The proposals finalised at the meet will be put up before the saints at an open platform on the last day of the nine-day-long birthday celebrations (June 7 to June 15) of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, head of Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas. Chief minister Yogi Adityanath will be a part of the inaugural event. “Saints from all across the country will assemble in Ayodhya on June 3 for a meeting to discuss the Ram Mandir issue,” said Mahant Kamal Nayan Das, senior member of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas and successor of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das.
