Rai further said that all the artifacts unearthed during digging and levelling of the temple site, including centuries-old relics, will be exhibited in the temple premises.
He said that final map of the temple would be passed by Ayodhya Development Authority and the requisite fees would be paid. "We are not seeking any fee exemption," he said.
Rai said that the Trust account has a current balance of Rs 42 crore, received from donations ranging from Re 1 to Rs 1 crore.
Replying to a question, he said, "At least 20,000 seers across India participated in the temple movement and it was not possible to invite all. We could send invites to only 90 seers from outside Ayodhya and 52 from the temple town."
