As Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said that the Ram Mandir was a matter of faith for him three trucks carrying stones and raw material have arrived from Dholpur in Rajasthan to Ayodhya.

It is being said that the trucks were carrying 18 blocks of sandstones for carving out structures of the Ram mandir. Pink stone from Dholpur in Rajasthan was brought in by the trucks and was being offloaded at the Ram Mandir Karyashala (workshop) managed by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

VHP spokesperson Sharad Sharma said that ‘Ram bhakts’ have sent 2,000 cubic feet stones from Bharatpur in Rajasthan because Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas in June 2015 had appealed to them to donate stones instead of cash.

“From June this year, the department has started giving form 39 that allows bringing of stones from other states. It is happening because the new government in the state is dedicated to Lord Ram, cow and nation,” he said.

Sharma said that arrival of sandstones would continue in the future too.

Prior to this, the last time stones for the temple arrived at the workshop was in December 2015. But after that, the Akhilesh Yadav-led government banned further supplies.

But when the matter is sub judice, what's the hurry? When asked about whether it had something to do with 2019 elections, Sharma denied it. “Supplies for Ram temple have kept on coming since the 90s. Nearly 65 percent work in form of cutting pillars and carving on them has already been done. We want to be fully prepared for the time when temple construction will actually start.”
