Ayodhya, August 4
Ahead of the groundbreaking for the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the authorities right here have taken inventory of each potential risk – together with that from monkeys.
An official stated scores of staff will maintain watch within the space across the Ram Janmabhoomi in order that Ayodhya’s monkeys don’t get wherever close to the venue of the bhoomi pujan, wherein Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take part on Wednesday.
Devotees going for a darshan of Ram Lalla on the makeshift temple are used to creating their method to the deity by a caged gangway, partly due to the monkey menace.
An official from the federal government’s data division informed PTI that municipal authorities and the animal husbandry division have been requested to “keep the premises safe from monkeys”.
They will use catapults and picket batons to shoo away any monkey noticed within the neighbourhood. But the best weapon will probably be gram and fruit, he stated.
These will probably be supplied to the monkeys a long way away from the positioning to maintain them busy.
Sanitation staff, residence guards and animal husbandry division staff will probably be on the job, the official stated. PTI
