Lord Ram’s tallest statue cannot be installed in open: Ayodhya priest

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Adityanath is expected to announce the idea of installing tallest statue of Lord Ram in Ayodhya during Diwali but ahead of it head priest at the makeshift temple at the disputed Babri Masjib-Ram Janmabhoomi site, Mahant Satyendra Das, has raised his voice that the statue cannot be installed in the open.

The priest added, “Who is going to take care of the statue and perform daily puja of the deity?”

Das performs prayer at the Ram Lalla statue at the Ram Janmabhoomi temple. He has been doing it for more than 25 years.

He said statue of Lord Ram cannot be a political statue and the need is to take care of the temple and not to install a tall statue.

Lately Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan said the statue of Lord Ram in Ayodhya would be taller than the recently unveiled statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in Gujarat by prime minister Narendra Modi.

It is learned the saints in Ayodhya are pressing the government to build a statue of Lord Ram in the city and it should be similar to that of Sardar Patel, Statue of Unity. If believed to the initial reports the statue would be built near the Saryu river.
Modi inaugurated the 182-metre statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on October 31 as a tribute to India’s ‘Iron Man’.

Modi said, Sardar Patel brought together the princely states and this is the reason people of India does not need visa to see Charminar in Hyderabad and lions of Gir.
