Press Trust of India  |  Ayodhya 

The Centre has announced setting up a museum here and also sanctioned Rs 151 crore, but the land for it has not yet been identified by the Union government nor allotted by the state dispensation.

"We don't have any information regarding this. I am hearing about this (inspection by Union Tourism Minister of the land for the proposed museum) since yesterday. I cannot say anything on this issue right now," Additional District Magistrate, Faizabad, said.

Faizabad District Magistrate Vivek said the district authorities had received no communication from the Centre regarding the land.

"We have no formal communication from the Union government regarding the land. Whenever we will be asked for it, we will look into the matter," District Magistrate Vivek told PTI.

Sharma, who was here for "inspecting" the site for the proposed museum, said he was hopeful of getting the land on the banks of Saryu river.
