The Ram Construction Committee has set up the supervisory panel through a notification, BJP MLA from Ayodhya said. “The Trust has constituted an expert committee of eminent engineers in the relevant field for the review and recommendations on the foundation design,” Gupta was quoted as saying by PTI. The panel will focus on constructing the temple with the highest quality and longevity taking into account the various geotechnical suggestions, Gupta said.
This has come in the wake of the finding of sandy soil a few feet below the ground at the proposed temple construction site, the Ram Temple Construction Committee. The Committee headed by former principal secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Nripendra Mishra had held a meeting last week to finalize the foundation laying plan for the temple. The meeting was held in consultation with building experts from Larsen & Toubro and Tata Consulting Engineers Limited to discuss and finalize the layout plan for the temple, the PTI report says.
