Bringing down curtains on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid issue, one of the longest-running title disputes in India, the Supreme Court has given its historical verdict the other day. Ram Janmabhoomi Trust is given the rights over the entire disputed 2.77-acre land for the construction of the Temple.
The Apex court also tried to balance things by announcing 5 acres of alternate land to the Sunni Wakf Board. Reports are that the Temple construction will begin on April 2nd, 2020 on the occasion of Sri Rama Navami and the construction will take two to three years to complete.
UP Government also started shortlisting alternative sits for the mosque. VHP already finalized a design for the Temple and it would be made of all rock without using a gram of iron. 180,000 stone slabs were ready for the construction and the government will also construct roads to the Temple site for the easy transportation of the construction material.
Buzz in the Political circles is that the Modi Government wants to complete and inaugurate the temple before the next elections. The government would obviously want to showcase the Temple as its success before seeking a third term.
