Three more truck of red stones arrived in Ayodhya on Wednesday morning for the construction of Ram Temple. Two trucks of stones had arrived earlier on June 20.

The stones were unloaded at Ayodhya's Ramsevak Puram, the storehouse for Ram Temple construction set up by the Vishswa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

This is going to be followed by more than hundred trucks in the next couple of days.

"Stones to be used in the construction of Ram Temple have arrived from Bharatpur, Rajasthan, while we need more than 100 truckloads to give final shape to the temple and we are trying to get them here soon," senior VHP leader Triloki Nath Pandey told the Times of India.

The carving of stones for the temple is being done under the supervision of an organisation of VHP, Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas.

Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas is headed by Nritya Gopal Das, one of the accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case. 

In April 2017, the Supreme Court of India reinstated criminal conspiracy charges against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani, Union Minister Uma Bharti, Murli Manohar Joshi and others in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case.

The apex court described the demolition of the 16th-century mosque as a "crime" which shook the "secular fabric of the Constitution".
