We have completed about 60 per cent of the work; the first floor is ready. Till the time these stones will be transported, we will start the work for the next floor. There is a need for around 250 labourers to speed up the work. Ram Mandir will be definitely constructed; Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the next Sardar Vallabhai Patel. He will not leave till he makes it," said Annu Bhai Sonpura, the Senior Supervisor.

Our labourers are cleaning the stones every day as the stones were covered in algae over the years. The work is speeding up now as the verdict from Supreme Court can come anytime soon. So we want to be ready for the construction of Ram Temple," stated a worker, Virju Yadav. The priests visit these workshops every day to monitor the work and conduct special prayers for Lord Ram.
