"I welcome Modi government's decision to form a trust for the establishment of Ram mandir in Ayodhya.
The construction of the temple will commence either on Ram Navmi (April 2) or Akshaya Tritiya (April 26) this year as discussed during a meeting at Prayagraj," he said. "However, the date will be finalised during the first meeting of the trust," the Swami added.
"Many people wanted that a Ram temple be built in Ayodhya... It will not just be a monument dedicated to Lord Ram, but a symbol of the country," he said.
"We will complete its construction in the next two years," he said.
Swami Devgiri thanked 'karsevaks' and late Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader Ashok Singhal for their contribution in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement.
