Lucknow: Modern techniques and the latest gadgets will be used to secure Ram Temple premises of Ayodhya. Uttar Pradesh police have decided on a technology-based security system for the Ram temple in Ayodhya that will cost Rs 77 crore, director-general of police Raj Kumar Vishwakarma said on Sunday. DGP said at a news conference,” Instead of a visible policing system, there will be modern technology to protect the temple, for which we have prepared a Rs 77-crore project. You will also see many technological changes for the safety of Ayodhya town, as it is part of our priority.”
According to the decision, aimed at reducing the number of security personnel and enhancing security, was taken at a meeting of the Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Trust’s security committee on Thursday.
According to the Trust, it was decided in the meeting that modern techniques and high-tech gadgets will be used to secure the Ram Mandir. The committee also decided to curtail security staff at Ram Mandir to ensure that the new security system is devotee-friendly.
Currently, the CRPF controls the innermost cordon of Ram Janmabhoomi, the provincial armed constabulary (PAC) is in-charge of the second line of security, and the Uttar Pradesh Police takes care of the outer ring of the Ram Janmabhoomi campus.
