Prime Minister Narendra Modi has highlighted the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, as a testament to the power of patience that the people of India have upheld for centuries.
With only a few months left before Lord Rama takes his place in the Ram Temple, PM Modi addressed a public gathering at the Dwarka Sri Ram Leela Society, emphasizing the significance of this historic event.

Burning the Forces of Division
In a veiled swipe at the Opposition parties, PM Modi declared that the day should also mark the burning of forces that try to ‘divide’ the country based on casteism and regionalism.
He urged the nation to view the burning of Ravana not just as the burning of an effigy, but as a symbolic act to eliminate deformities that hinder social harmony.
The PM emphasized the need to extinguish the forces that seek to divide our great nation.
PM Modi highlighted the significance of ‘Shastra Puja’ (worship of weapons) on Vijayadashami. He clarified that on Indian soil, weapons are not worshipped to dominate others, but to protect our own land.
This tradition symbolizes our commitment to safeguarding our nation’s boundaries. The PM emphasized that our Shakti Puja is not only for our own welfare but also for the well-being of the entire world.
Celebrating Dussehra: Victory and Progress
Extending his wishes to the people on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, PM Modi emphasized the festival’s significance as the triumph of good over evil. This year, the country is not only celebrating Dussehra, but it also commemorates the victory of India’s Chandrayaan-2 mission to the moon.
The PM expressed pride in the nation’s knowledge and capabilities, both in terms of scriptures like the Gita and in technological advancements such as building the INS Vikrant and Tejas.
PM Modi highlighted that the people of India not only understand the dignity of Lord Ram but also know how to protect the boundaries of the nation.
He expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to witness the ‘Ravan Dahan,’ symbolizing the victory over evil and the strength of the nation.
As the countdown begins for Lord Rama’s arrival in Ayodhya, PM Modi’s address at the Dwarka Sri Ram Leela Society emphasized the significance of this historic event.
The construction of the Ram Temple is a testament to the patience and perseverance of the Indian people throughout the centuries.
It is also an occasion to reflect on the need to eliminate forces that seek to divide our nation. As the country celebrates Dussehra and its recent accomplishments, PM Modi reassures the nation of its strength and capabilities.
