UP government plans to build 100-meter tall Ram statue in Ayodhya

Coming to the latest news, the Yogi Adityanath government has unveiled a plan to set up a 100-metre tall Lord Rama statue in the banks of River Sarayu in Ayodhya.

Also part of the plan is a Ram Katha gallery on the banks of the river, a multi-purpose auditorium in the Digambar Akhara premises and various public utility services. The report said that the proposal had been presented to Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik as part of the state tourism department's initiatives to promote religious tourism. The press release stated that the statue of Lord Ram will be build at Saryughat after clearance from the National Green Tribunal.

"On receipt of clearance by the National Green Tribunal, a grand statue of Lord Sri Ram will be constructed on the banks of the Saryu", an official statement from the Governor's office said. So far, the proposal has not been to NGT for approval. The Union Tourism ministry has sanctioned ₹133.70 crore to make Ayodhya a tourism hub.

Awasthi made an elaborate presentation before governor Ram Naik on Monday about the details of the integrated tourism development programme that will cost approximately Rs 195.89 crore and the grand Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya this year.

The Ram Temple has been an emotive issue for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the last three decades.
