Among the many activities planned today before Ayodhya Ram Mandir bhoomi pujan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to plant a young Parijaat on the temple premises using a traditional drip irrigation method.
Earlier in July, the prime minister shared an example of this method, which has been put into practice in parts of Gujarat where water is scarce. The method involves burying unglazed earthen pots filled with water, matkas, parallel to the root system of the plant, ensuring a slow infiltration of water into the soil.
“For about a week you don’t need to water the plant anymore. The pot will act as a natural drip irrigation vehicle,” the Prime Minister said on his blog “A girl, a tree and a teacher “.
Citing the list of activities planned for August 5, Mahant Rajkumar Das had earlier said that the young Parijaat would be planted by the prime minister before performing the bhoomi pujan.
“Parijaat is considered a divine tree, therefore Prime Minister Modi will plant it. The Prime Minister will go to Shree Ram Janmabhoomi where he will worship Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman first, then plant a young Parijaat and then perform the bhoomi pujan “Das said. ANI.
The cornerstone laying ceremony for Ram Temple in Ayodhya will be performed by PM Modi today. He will also unveil a plaque to mark the event and issue a commemorative postage stamp on Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir.
The ceremony will be attended by more than 100 priests and personalities, including the head of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh, Mohan Bhagwat, Iqbal Ansari (former litigator in the Ayodhya land dispute case), the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, and senior leaders of the BJP.
