NDRF Sets Up Camp Ahead of Ram Temple ‘Pran Pratishtha’ Ceremony; Elaborate Security Measures in Ayodhya

With just 48 hours remaining until the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony at the Ram Temple on January 22, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has established a camp near the shrine in Ayodhya to swiftly respond to any contingencies that may arise. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to perform the rituals around the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of Shri Ram Lalla at the temple on the mentioned date.

Speaking to ANI on Saturday, Manoj Kumar Sharma, the deputy inspector general of police, NDRF, provided details of the deployment of rescue personnel in the temple town in preparation for the significant event. “Three NDRF teams have been deployed here ahead of the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony on January 22. The deployment has been done in coordination with the local administration and police. One of our teams has been deployed at the ghats. We are ready to deal with all sorts of contingencies,” Sharma stated.

Ahead of the grand ceremony, comprehensive security deployments and arrangements have been made across the city. Praveen Kumar, IG, Ayodhya, assured, “We are making necessary preparations with regard to security in coordination with the agencies concerned. The visitors have already started arriving for the ‘Pran Pratishtha’. We are ensuring close surveillance through drone cameras and human intelligence. All security loopholes are being identified and addressed on priority. We are confident that the mega event on January 22 will pass off without a hitch.”

Kumar also confirmed that all necessary arrangements have been made for the guests attending the ceremony.

However, the Ayodhya Police issued a caution on Saturday regarding the rise of cyber crimes as the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ day approaches. Cybercriminals are reportedly defrauding people by sending fake QR codes for ‘donations’ in the name of Ram Temple, promising free prasad, VIP passes, and entry passes to the temple on January 22. The police have advised citizens to exercise caution and not respond to requests or messages from unknown persons without verification, and to refrain from making donations without proper authentication.

The booking for ‘aarti’ passes to the Ram Janmbhoomi temple started in December ahead of the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony on January 22. A team of priests, led by Lakshami Kant Dixit, will officiate the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ rituals on Monday. The idol of Shri Ram Lalla, crafted by Mysuru sculptor Arun Yogiraj, was earlier placed inside the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.
