Minister for parliamentary affairs and finance Suresh Khanna had moved the resolution in the assembly after presenting the state budget for 20224-2025.

“The Ram temple in Ayodhya Dham has been possible following orders of the Supreme Court after a battle in court. This is the biggest incident of the century,” he said.

Khanna said the Ram temple in Ayodhya would attract many foreign tourists and strengthen the state’s economy.

Congress Legislature Party leader Aradhana Mishra ‘Mona’ said her party neither supported the motion nor opposed it. “There was no need for the state government to move the resolution. The Supreme Court’s verdict had paved the way for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya and no political party or person should take credit for the same,” said the CLP leader.
