With preparations for the Ram Lalla Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya on January 22 in full swing, the UP Police is leaving no stone unturned for the security of the city. Recognising the crucial role locals can play, top police officials held a meeting with residents and members of the Nishad community, seeking their cooperation in maintaining order and vigilance. 

The UP police sought local cooperation for seamless security in Temple Town

IG Zone Praveen Kumar led the meeting, emphasizing the significance of the event not just for Ayodhya but for the entire nation. The expected presence of the Prime Minister, along with thousands of VVIP guests from India and abroad, poses a significant security challenge. To address this, Kumar sought the community's assistance in ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience for visitors. He urged residents to be alert and report any suspicious activity or unfamiliar individuals, particularly near the Saryu River or within Ayodhya itself. A dedicated WhatsApp number for confidential information sharing was also shared, assuring anonymity for informants. 

IG Zone Praveen Kumar said, "In view of the Pran Pratishtha programme to be held in Ayodhya on January 22, today we held a meeting with the local people of Ayodhya and the Nishad community and sought their cooperation regarding the security arrangements of Ayodhya. January 22 is the most important day for us. It is an important day; thousands of VVIP guests are coming to Ayodhya; hence, guidelines have been given to ensure that they do not face any kind of problem." 

For the 'Pran-Pratishtha' ceremony, vedic rituals will begin from Jan 16

Prime Minister Narendra Modi would preside over the 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony at the Ram Temple on January 22. Vedic rituals for the 'Pran-Pratishtha' ceremony of Ram Lalla (infant Lord Ram) in Ayodhya will begin on January 16, a week before the main ceremony. 

From Jan 14 to 22, Ayodhya will mark the Amrit Mahotsav

A priest from Varanasi, Lakshmi Kant Dixit, will perform the main rituals of the 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony of Ram Lalla on January 22. From January 14 to January 22, Ayodhya will mark the Amrit Mahotsav. A 1008 Hundi Mahayagya will also be organised, in which thousands of devotees will be fed. Several tent cities are being erected in Ayodhya to accommodate thousands of devotees, who are expected to arrive in the temple town of Uttar Pradesh for the grand 'Pran Pratishtha' ceremony.

According to the Sri Ram Janambhoomi Trust, arrangements will be made for 10,000-15,000 people. Local authorities are also gearing up for the anticipated surge in visitors around the grand ceremony and are in the process of implementing enhanced security measures and making logistical arrangements to ensure a smooth and spiritually enriching experience for all attendees.
