Preparations for Bhoomi Pujan are in full swing for the construction of the temple in Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also participate in the Bhoomi Pujan program on 5 August. Soil and water are being brought from the pilgrimage sites located in different areas of the country, then silver brick to be installed in the foundation of the temple from somewhere. Amidst all this, this issue has taken a political color in Maharashtra.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had suggested the e-Bhoomi Pujan of the Ram temple recently. Uddhav had attributed this to the epidemic of corona virus and the desire of everyone to reach Ayodhya. Now former Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Devendra Fadnavis has hit back at Uddhav Thackeray. Fadnavis has said that some people, including Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, are saying that Bhoomi Pujan of Ram temple should be done through video conferencing. I am surprised that the Chief Minister and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) are speaking the same language.
The former Chief Minister said that this is a big day for crores of Hindus. It should be celebrated in a grand manner keeping in mind the social distancing and epidemic. Fadnavis was also questioned on the statement of Maharashtra BJP President Chandrakant Patil, in which he said that we can form a government with the Shiv Sena. He made it clear that what the BJP state president said in response to a question.
