While on one side Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other Hindu organistions are busy in making `last efforts’ to clear all hurdles on the way of taking up Rama Mandir at Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has cleared proposals to set up a statue of Lord Ram on the banks of the river Sarayu in Ayodhya. This issue was discussed at length in the cabinet meeting held yesterday and also approved blue print of images.
From the exclusive images acquired by Zee Media, the proposed statue will be around 221 metres high, with a 50-metre base. The statue will have Lord Ram holding a bow and arrow, with a quiver on his back. At the 50-metre base, there will be a museum that will put on display items that are associated with the Ramayana.
The museum will also have on display a section dedicated to the history of Ayodhya. It will also have a section to put on display the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu. The Ram statue will be built on 100 acres of land. The Sarayu river front will also be developed as part of this ambitious project
Chief Minister is confident that a satisfactory solution to the Ayodhya dispute will be found soon within the constitutional framework of the country. He also said that a grand statue of Lord Ram will be erected in Ayodhya and land has already been identified for it.
