Taking to social media, Singh wrote: " Hanuman Tehi parsa kar puni kinh pranam, Where are Ram's cashew nuts and where is rest without Mohi? The Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi has called upon all the countrymen to contribute towards cleanliness in the temples around them. Today, I went to Hanuman Setu temple in Lucknow and did Shramdaan under #SwachhTeerth campaign and got the privilege of serving Hanumanji, the exclusive servant of Lord Shri Ram."

In preparation for the historic Ram Mandir inauguration on January 22, Ayodhya is getting ready. Karsevakpuram has been embellished with ornamental artefacts focused on the epic 'Ramayana'. A comprehensive agenda has been devised to greet the guests, which includes presenting the dignitaries with the dirt from Ram Janmabhoomi that was removed during the foundation excavation.
