The eagerly awaited ritualistic consecration of Ram Lalla at the newly constructed Ram temple in Ayodhya was held in the presence of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. Millions of people watched the consecration ceremony on television at their homes and temples across the country. Flower petals were showered on the temple from Army helicopters at the auspicious time of the consecration.  Hailing the ceremony as a divine programme, the PM wrote on twitter that the whole country had been gripped by overwhelming emotion over this consecration and he was feeling privileged to be a part of it, he tweeted.  He is slated to address a public gathering and interact with the workers engaged in the temple construction work after the completion of the ceremony. Meanwhile, the top BJP leaders, including the party president J P Nadda and the Union Home Minister Amit Shah, watched the live streaming of the consecration ceremony by way of expressing solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of the devotees of Lord Ram who had been appealed not to come to Ayodhya on this particular day. However, the top leaders of the Opposition parties chose to stay away from the ceremony.
