Prime Minister Narendra Modi informed the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that a trust has been formed to construct a Ram Temple in Ayodhya as directed by the Supreme Court. The decision came in line with the apex court’s landmark verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi case.

The prime minister said that after the verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue came out, the people of India displayed remarkable faith in democratic processes and procedures.
Amid “Jai Shri Ram” chants from the treasury bench, Shri Narendra Modi said, ”Let us all support construction of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya.”
”I salute the 130 crore people of India,” he said. “We are all members of one family. This is the ethos of India. We want every Indian to be happy and healthy. Guided by ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ we are working for the welfare of every Indian,” Shri Modi tweeted.
“In India, be it Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Parsis or Jains, everyone is a part of one “broad family,” the Prime Minister added.
The Supreme Court had directed the government to form the trust within three months and the deadline was ending on February 9.
