In a major development towards the construction of a grand temple of Lord Ram in the ancient city of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh (UP), the Ministry of Home Affairs is expected to announce within a week the constitution of a trust for the temple construction along with the offer for a 5-acre big plot for a mosque as per the directives of the Supreme Court, reports Times of India.
The development comes as the Ministry which is being headed by Union Minister Amit Shah has prepared the framework for the trust's functioning and constitution. Also, the Ministry has also completed the identification of land to be offered to the UP Sunni Waqf Board.
Now, the entire proposal will be sent to the Union Cabinet which is headed by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi for approval. Once the Cabinet's approval has been received for the proposal, the announcement of the same will be made in a week.
It should be noted that the Centre is likely to offer the UP Sunni Waqf Board three different plots of land to choose from for building of a mosque.
