Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in Ayodhya on the morning of Wednesday and successfully laid the 40-kilogram silver break in Ayodhya to kickstart the construction of Ram temple in the Ram janmabhoomi site.
After laying the foundation, the Prime Minister delivered his address where he said,
“It is my good fortune that Ram Janmabhoomi Trust has invited me to the event and gave me a chance to be a witness to this historic moment. Many congratulations to devotees across the country.”
Here’s how India reacted to the historic day on Twitter.
5th August 2020 is a big date for Indian history……it's beginning of a new era……this is a proud moment for us that we r witnessing it.

Yogi Adityanath could not control today. This ear to ear smile shows what he truly is feeling today. Like everyone, all this must be surreal for him as well. #JaiShriRam #RamMandirAyodhya pic.twitter.com/72Kp5y8tVN

Looking at the pictures of @narendramodi doing the bhoomi Pooja for #RamMandirAyodhya I got reminded of him at #Amaravathi bhoomi Pooja. He was & still is the PM of India. If #RamTemple is possible for him even #Amaravathi should be. It’s just a choice he made 😊 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/Dal2OCqEZT

My heart swells with pride, not just at the birth of a new glorious Ram Mandir, but also at the death of political correctness.

12:44:08, a new era has dawned. Let this be an era of love, sacrifice, faith, harmony, Vachan Poorti (honouring one's own word), Nyaay (justice) & Maryada (restraint in thought & actions). Let's follow the ideals He established.#RamMandirAyodhya #RamTempleBhoomiPujan #RamMandir pic.twitter.com/OJ2vR27s8q
