With the announcement of a sky-high Ram temple at Ayodhya in the next three months by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Lucknow on Tuesday, the shape of Ram temple trust is likely to be announced by January-end.
The Supreme Court, while giving its verdict in favour of Ram temple on November 9, 2019, had asked the Central government to set up a trust in three months for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya and the deadline is ending on February 9.
Sources in Vishwa Hindu Parishad said the Union Home Ministry had finalised the procedure of the trust for Ram temple and an announcement would be made within this month.
Though it was not disclosed who would be the members of the trust, sources said that a couple of senior saints involved in the Ram temple movement could be accommodated in it.
The sources said that the VHP favoured Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas chairman Mahant Nritya Gopal Das as chairman of the proposed trust which would have 11 members.
Those likely to be included in the trust include several senior saints, besides Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, UP Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath along with the district magistrate of Ayodhya.
Sadhus and saints have already announced that the foundation stone of Ram temple would be laid during the coming Ram Navami festival in April.
