'My first decision after returning from Ayodhya': PM Modi announces new scheme on solar panels

New Delhi/IBNS: After returning from Ayodhya on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced his decision to begin a new scheme to help people set up solar panels in their homes.

The decision, he indicated, was inspired by the realisation that "all devotees of the world get energy from the light of Suryavanshi Lord Shri Ram".

"The first decision I have taken after returning from Ayodhya is that our government will launch "Pradhanmantri Suryodaya Yojana" with the target of installing rooftop solar on 1 crore houses,' PM Modi said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

"This will not only reduce the electricity bill of the poor and middle class, but also make India self-reliant in the field of energy," he said.

In a grand ceremony that was witnessed by millions not just across the country but globally too, PM Modi inaugurated Ram Janmabhoomi Temple in Uttar Pradesh's temple town Ayodhya.

Invoking Ram with inclusive national consciousness and referring to India's solar and lunar missions for the youth urging them to combine tradition with modernity, Modi addressed thousands of people, including the country's top celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Rajinikanth, Sachin Tendulkar, at the ceremony which is widely viewed as a slow start to the campaigning for the upcoming General Elections.

Eleven days after beginning fasting for the ceremony, Modi arrived at the grand Ram Temple, where the dignitaries have been flocking in since the morning, at around 12 noon and went on to perform the rituals for the consecration ceremony.

During the entire time of rituals, Modi was flanked by Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and very significantly Mohan Bhagwat, who is the head of the ruling  BJP's ideological patron Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
