At least three trucks loaded with stones arrived in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya for the construction of Ram Mandir. Trucks were brought to Ayodhya under the supervision of VHP. VHP leader Prakash Kumar Gupta said that red stones were brought for the construction of Ram Mandir. He stated that works were going on as per schedule. The stones are being unloaded at a warehouse in Ram Sevak Puram maintained by VHP. Ram Mandir issue has been raging for years as some political parties claim that site belongs to Babri Masjid.
