Six months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of Ram Mandir in Uttar Pradeshs Ayodhya, a nation-wide fund collection drive for the temples construction was announced on January 14. 

On Friday, the Vidarbha branch of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha-Kshetra Nyas launched a campaign for donation collection for the Ram Mandir at Shri Poddareshwar Ram Mandir, Central Avenue.
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, President of Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha Swami Avadheshnand Giri Maharaj and Nagpur Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari were the chief guests present during the event.
Governor Koshyari donated Rs 1,11,000 for the construction, during the fund-raising event. He also performed the Aarti? along with Giri Maharaj and Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari.
Lord Ram unites the nation and he is our national deity. We are fortunate that a grand Ram Mandir is being constructed at Ayodhya. Ram is not just Ram, he is Rashtra? (symbol of the nation) for us all, he is Rashtradev, Governor Koshyari said.
We are moving in the right direction for bringing `Ram Rajya’ and the country is also moving in the right direction. We should not demand things from our country, but think what we can give to the country, and if we carry on with this feeling then I feel that Ram Rajya is not far,” he added.
Speaking to Nation Next, Treasurer from Itwari block of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha-Kshetra Trust Vivek Dhakras informed, Even before the fund-raising event started, people from Itwari area, who have been eagerly waiting to witness the construction of Ram Mandir, donated us Rs 25 lakh on January 12.
Our fund collection process is running in two parallel ways, one is through door-to-door campaigns and another is through fund-raising events, which we call Nidhi Samarpan eva Gruha Sankapla. As per the response we are getting through this campaign, we are optimistic that we would surpass the required amount of donation for Ram Mandir very soon, he said.
Out of around Rs 1,400 crores of donation, Rs 300-400 crore would be spend on the construction of the temple itself , which would cover around 2.77 acre of the land. Rest 69-acre land would be used to construct Ramayan Dham. The area would be equipped with a library, hospitals, museums containing ancient archaeological evidences, etc., he said.
