August 5 will be a historic day when Bhoomi Pujan will be done at Ramjanmabhoomi through Prime Minister Narendra Modi. With this, construction work of the grand Ram temple will begin in Ayodhya. At the same time, people living in the city of Prabhu Ram hope that with the start of construction work of the country’s largest religious tourist place, there will be a tremendous change in the economy of the district. With this, the income of those who make lamps, those who sell flowers and offerings outside temples will increase.
The potter Ashok Kumar, who lives in Jaisinghpur village, says that on the day of Bhoomi Pujan in Ayodhya, Ram’s Paadi and other places will be illuminated with a lamp. For this, 40 potter families living in the village have received orders to make 1.5 lakh lamps. More orders can be received in the coming days.
While talking to Aaj Tak, Ashok said that since the Yogi Adityanath government has come in the state, his income has also increased since then. Last year in Ayodhya, for the grand event of Diwali, the potters of their village got orders to make five lakh diyas. In the year 2018 also three lakh diyas were made through villagers. They hope that as soon as the construction of Ram temple starts, religious programs will be more in Ayodhya, in which lamps will be needed.
Rakesh Prajapati, who lives in the village, is also a potter, who says that since Yogi Adityanath’s government came to power in the state, his income has also increased and he has also been receiving orders for making diyas for the Deepotsav program during Diwali.
Businessmen will benefit
At the same time, Anand Saini, who has set up a flower shop, says that once the construction of the temple starts, Lord Ram’s blessings will be given to the people of Ayodhya. All small businessmen doing business in religious city will also be benefited. At the same time, if the sources are to be believed, as soon as the construction of the temple starts, the government will try to develop Ayodhya as the biggest religious tourist destination. Therefore, development works will be expedited. Due to investment in Ayodhya in the coming time, new employment opportunities will also be created for the people of the district.
