PM Modi will plant parijat ahead of bhoomi pujan in Ayodhya

Today is the day when bhoomi pujan is to be done which will be attended by PM Modi. Modi will plant a Parijaat sapling on the temple ground ahead of bhoomi pujan

Modi may use the traditional natural drip irrigation method achieved by placing a clay pot filled with wter parallel to the roots of the plant thereby giving water to the plant for about a week long

The Prime Minister, earlier in July, had himself shared an example of this unique method which is already practiced in parts of Gujarat where water is scarce.

Earlier, Mahant Rajkumar Das stating the list of activities lined up for August 5 had said that the Parijaat sapling are going to be planted by the Prime Minister after he takes part within the pooja of Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman.

“Parijaat is taken into account as a divine tree, therefore, PM Modi will plant the tree. PM will attend Shree Ram Janmabhoomi where he will participate in pooja of Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman. He will then plant a Parijat sapling and subsequently perform Bhoomi Pujan,” Das said.

The much-awaited foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya will happen amid much fanfare on Wednesday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is about to perform a pooja at the Hanuman Garhi temple and Shree Ramlala Virajman before performing the bhoomi pujan.

He will unveil a plaque to mark the laying of the inspiration stone and also release a commemorative postage on Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir.

Sanitisation work was administered at the Hanuman Garhi temple on Wednesday morning before the PM`s visit. The Saryu Ghat was also decorated.

Over 11,000 diyas are set to be lit across the town of Ayodhya, illuminating every street and every one houses are going to be celebrating with a deepotsava, a festival of lights.

Apart from PM Modi, the ceremony are going to be attended by Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttarakhand Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj, Senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Iqbal Ansari (former litigant in Ayodhya land dispute case) and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
