RS discusses ram templeThe Rajya Sabha on Saturday held a short discussion on the Ram temple construction and the Pran Pratishtha ceremony.

On the other hand, Congress MP Pramod Tiwari claimed that the Ram temple had been constructed hundreds of metres away from the actual birthplace of Lord Ram and demanded that an all-party team of parliamentarians be formed to inspect the site. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi lauded late Bal Thackeray’s contribution to the Ram temple movement.HOUSES ADJOURNED SINE DIEBoth Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned sine die on Saturday, marking the conclusion of the Budget session of Parliament.
