In a symbolic gesture of support and participation, locals and members of the All Assam Divyanga Versatile Association from Kamrup district in Assam have dispatched 7,000 pieces of bamboo to Ayodhya ahead of the consecration ceremony of the Ram Temple.
A container truck loaded with bamboo pieces, collected from the Lampi area near Boko, embarked on its journey to Ayodhya on January 4 night. Arjun Chetry, a member of Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council, expressed pride in their contribution to the historic event.
“We were instructed to collect some bamboo, and we have collected the bamboo pieces from the Lampi area. We will send these bamboo pieces to Ayodhya, and the bamboo-loaded truck will travel 1,250 km to reach Ayodhya. It is a matter of pride for us,” said Chetry.
The 7,000 bamboo branches were sourced from the Lampi area along the Assam-Meghalaya border and assembled at Gohalkona Kacharipara. The All Assam Divyanga Versatile Association donated these bamboo pieces for use in the inauguration ceremony of the Ram Temple.
Meanwhile, in Lucknow, joint commissioner of police, law and order, Upendra Kumar Agarwal chaired a meeting to discuss alternative routes and security arrangements for the temple consecration event scheduled for January 22.
