Today is a very important day for Indian society under the leadership of PM Modi. January 22 has emerged as a memorable day for the country. Ram Lalla, who resided in the tent for many years, is today resided in a grand temple. It seems that like 'Sabri' (a Ramayana character), we all are waiting for Ram ji. This event will provide a feeling of unity in the entire country. Today this festival is being organized in 593 temples in Rajasthan," he said.

"Lord Ram has finally arrived (in his abode) following the wait of centuries. After the patience that we showed for centuries and the sacrifices we made, our Lord Ram has finally arrived," the PM said.
"January 22, 2024, is not just a date, but the beginning of a new era. The construction of Ram Mandir has filled people with a new energy," he added." Ram Diwali being celebrated across the world":
The PM also sought forgiveness of Lord Ram for the delay in construction of the temple.
"Today, I apologise to Lord Ram as there was something lacking in our love and penance due to which this work (construction of Ram Temple) was not done for so many years. However, that gap has been bridged today and I am confident that Lord Ram will forgive us," PM Modi said.
