Here's everything that PM Modi announced: 

  • The trust formed by the Centre will deal with the construction of Ram Temple and issues related to it, independently. 
  • The Uttar Pradesh government has given its approval to provide 5 acres of land for the Sunni Waqf Board, as per the instructions of the Supreme Court. 
  • Pertaining to the 'large number' of pilgrims expected to visit the holy site, the government decided the authorised land, that is around 67.703 acres, and comprises of an inside and outside courtyard, will be transferred to the Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra.

Ayodhya Verdict 

Putting an end to the decades-old case, a five-judge bench of the Supreme Court in November, ruled unanimously in favour of building a Ram Temple in the disputed site. It said the entire disputed land spread over 2.7 acres will be handed over to a trust formed by the government, which will monitor the construction of Ram Temple at the site. The court had directed the government to give 5-acre land to Sunni Waqf Board in Ayodhya for the construction of a mosque. 

Ranjan Gogoi, the Chief Justice of India presiding over the panel of judges, said it was not the court’s job to rule on faith or politics, but that "as a secular institution (it) should uphold all faiths and religions."
