In the month of August, we celebrate our Independence Day and now we have another reason to celebrate. I think the struggle which was going on since the last 500 years has now finally come to an end."

"This bhoomi pujan, is the new beginning for a progressive country. I think Lord Ram's exile which lasted for 500 years has finally come to an end. He has a home now, he will stay in the temple which will be made now. Everyone will have his blessings and this is a way towards Ram Rajya," he added. Ram Temple Bhoomi Pujan in Ayodhya: Here is PM Narendra Modi's Full Itinerary For The Ram Mandir Event on August 5
