Govind Giri Singh on Temple Trust’s future course of action 

Talking about the future course of action for the Ram Temple trust, the treasurer said, “This work is not small, it is very important, and it is a really big responsibility. We formed a committee for this yesterday, the diplomat who will oversee the working of this committee is Nripendra Misra. He has to coordinate with everyone and decide what is the best thing for the development of this temple. We have to also give an approximate time as to how soon the planning and the construction could be completed. We have to also look at our Dharma-Shastra (mythological calendar) and set the dates accordingly.”

“See, there is a lot of struggle that took place to establish a temple in Ayodhya. Nritya Gopal Das Ji has also had a major hand in this struggle. Respecting the struggle of the saint society in Ayodhya is the first thing and respecting the struggle of every other person for the temple’s establishment is the second thing. Keeping all of this in mind it was important to give the position of committee’s chairperson to Nritya Gopal Das,” he added.
