The Prime Minister will first perform ‘pooja’ of ‘Bhagwan Shree Ramlala Virajman’ after reaching the site at around 12 pm.
Modi will also plant a ‘Parijaat’ sapling in the temple premises. He is likely to use the traditional natural drip irrigation method, achieved by placing an unglazed clay pot filled with water parallel to the roots of the plant thereby providing water to the plant for about a week, while planting the auspicious ‘Parijaat’ sapling.
Subsequently, at 12.30 pm, the Prime Minister will perform the much-awaited ‘bhoomi pujan’ for Ram temple.
After the ‘bhoomi pujan’, PM Modi will address a public function on the foundation stone-laying ceremony of Ram Temple.
The Prime Minister is also scheduled to unveil a plaque to mark the occasion and also release a commemorative postage stamp on ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir’.
