Divya Delhi: After the first heavy showers since the Ram temple opened to the public in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya, its chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das reported Monday that water was leaking from the roof. Das alleged that the temple was poorly built and that there was no plan to drain rainwater after the nocturnal showers. He urged the temple management to take corrective action. Temple trust sources stated that once senior officials learned of the roof leak, temple construction committee chairman Nripendra Mishra visited the temple and ordered the roof to be repaired and waterproofed. Mishra told reporters separately that one floor of the temple will be ready by July and that he hopes to finish the building by December. Acharya Satyendra Das told reporters that the temple's sanctum sanctorum roof leaked heavily in the first heavy showers at midnight on Saturday. He stated rainwater was seeping from the ceiling above the priest's seat in front of Ram Lalla's idol and VIP darshan area. Engineers from across the nation are erecting the Ram temple, which is remarkable. January 22 marked the temple's opening. However, no one realized the roof would leak when it rained. A prominent temple's roof leaking is startling. This happened why?" "Such an incident is happening in the presence of such big engineers, which is very wrong," stated. Nighttime showers on Saturday caused major waterlogging on Rampath and surrounding lanes. As sewer water invaded dwellings, the Rampath and other recently built roads in Ayodhya collapsed in. Locals reported waterlogging from Jalwanpura to Hanumangarhi Bhaktipath and Tedhi Bazaar to the interior neighborhoods.
