Dharamshala, July 29

BJP leader Shanta Kumar on Tuesday said the foundation stone laying ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya was an important occasion for Himachal Pradesh as it was in Palampur in 1989 that the BJP passed a resolution to build the shrine at Lord Ram’s birthplace.

In a statement released here, the former state chief minister said this occasion would be marked in golden letters in India’s history.

“After 500 years of struggle, sacrifice and court cases, the construction of the Ram temple will finally begin,” he said.

“This occasion is very important for Himachal Pradesh and especially for Palampur. On 11 June 1989, the BJP passed this historic resolution in Palampur,” he said.

Kumar said that due to coronavirus pandemic, no public program will be held to celebrate this occasion. He requested Chief Minister Jairam Thakur to appeal to the people of the state that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi lays the foundation stone of the temple on August 5, they should offer flowers on pictures of Lord Rama in their houses.
