Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the consecration of the Ram Lalla idol in the Ayodhya temple, and said he has the blessings of Lord Ram.
Singh described the event in Ayodhya as a “revolutionary work” and said those who witnessed this moment are fortunate.
The defence minister’s remarks came after he visited a Shiv temple here and offered prayers to mark the Ayodhya Ram temple consecration ceremony.
The new Ram Lalla idol was consecrated at the Ayodhya temple on Monday, an event led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and watched by lakhs of people on television at their homes and in temples across the country.
“This is a revolutionary work happening,” Singh told reporters. “Everyone feels that a new era is beginning. As a result of Ram Lalla’s Pran Pratishtha, we all are feeling that after a long time, Maryada Purushottam Ram is returning again to Ayodhya.”
“This is a matter of great joy for all of us. We all are fortunate that we are getting the opportunity to witness the moment,” he added.
