Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for Ayodhya around 9:30am. He is first scheduled to arrive in Lucknow, from where he’ll proceed his journey to ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi’. Several top leaders, including some from Congress, took to Twitter to welcome the historic day and chant ‘Jai Shree Ram’. The ‘bhumi pujan’ of the grand temple in Ayodhya, at a spot where devotees believe that Lord Ram was born, is said to take place at 12:40 pm, which is the ‘muhurat’ for the foundation stone laying ceremony. Modi along with Adityanath and 175 people who figure in a select guest list of seers and politicians will attend the ceremony.
