The stage is set for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lay the foundation stone of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Preparations are underway for the grand ‘bhoomi poojan’ on 5th August 2020, with Ayodhya celebrating the day as a ‘mini-diwali’. The main guest list includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and governor Anandiben Patel. There will be a total of 175 people in attendance, comprising religious leaders and some eminent citizens from Ayodhya. Security has been increased in the region with around 4.000 security personnel including NSG commandos manning the site and 75 check posts blocking approach roads. The district borders have also been sealed since Monday night. The town is expected to shut down at least two hours before the PM arrives.
