On the last working day of the 17th Lok Sabha, passed a resolution terming the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya as ushering in a “new era of governance and public welfare”, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his valedictory address later, stated that the resolution by both Houses would give “constitutional power to the generations to come to be proud of our values”.
Several members in both Lok Sabha and Rajya participated in the discussion that lasted a few hours. The CPI-M staged a walk-out from Rajya Sabha.
The Lok Sabha also passed a resolution on "the construction of historic Shri Ram Temple and Pran Pratishtha of Shri Ram Lalla" after a nearly four-hour discussion, describing its construction as a historic achievement.
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla moved the resolution and said it will give the values of hope and unity to future generations.
He said that the construction of the Ram Temple, following centuries of anticipation, marks the commencement of a new era characterized by effective governance and public welfare. The speaker emphasized that the temple symbolizes the essence of "Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat" - One India, Best India.
