New Delhi: Almost all political leaders were in a celebratory mood as the bhoomi pujan ceremony of the Ram Temple was finally held Wednesday.

President Ram Nath Kovind, who usually stays away from commenting on political matters, also extends his wishes on the Ram Temple.

Home Minister Amit Shah, who is in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus, was most excited.

Union ministers like Nitin Gadkari and Smriti Irani found their own unique ways to commemorate the occasion.
