We thus, expect the process of building the Ram Mandir to be expedited and we wholeheartedly applaud the decision of the entire Cabinet
The Prime Minister made the Ayodhya declaration on the floor of the Lok Sabha. This move comes nearly three months after the SC ruling on the Ayodhya land dispute. Furthermore, 5 acres of land in Ayodhya will be handed over to the Sunni Central Waqf Board.
PM Modi said, "I am happy to announce that in today’s Cabinet meeting, important decisions have been taken in this regard keeping in mind the observations of the SC. In line with the SC judgment, an independent trust called ‘Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teertha Kshetra' has been formed. This trust will be empowered to take decisions pertaining to the construction of the Ram temple. The UP government has agreed to hand over 5 acres of land to the Sunni Central Waqf Board."

This is the trust that was to be formed in line with the verdict of the Honourable Supreme Court of India: PM @narendramodi
The Constitution Bench of the SC in its verdict on November 9, 2019, awarded the entire disputed area in Ayodhya to the Hindu parties. It directed the Centre to formulate a scheme within three months which will be responsible for building a temple. On the other hand, the SC ordered that an alternative land of 5 acres in Ayodhya would be given to the Sunni Central Waqf Board for the construction of a mosque.
