Narendra Modi will be in Ayodhya on the eve of Diwali
It is expected that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh on the eve of Diwali on Sunday to perform a “puja” at the Ram temple and have “darshan” at the temple. According to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Modi will inspect the construction site of a grand Ram temple and later perform a symbolic coronation of Lord Ram.
The statement states that the prime minister will witness the “aarti” on the banks of the Saryu river at approximately 6.30 pm, followed by the launch of the grand “Deepotsav” celebrations by the prime minister.
This year marks the sixth edition of Deepotsav, and Modi will be participating for the first time.
On this occasion, more than 15 lakh “diyas” (earthen lamps) will be lit. During Deepotsav, five animated tableaux and eleven Ramlila tableaux will be prepared, featuring various dance forms from different states.
A three-dimensional holographic projection mapping show and a grand musical laser show will be presented to Modi at Ram Ki Paidi on the banks of the Saryu.
