PM Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid special tribute to the legendary Lata Mangeshkar on her 93rd birth anniversary on Wednesday by inaugurating an intersection in Ayodhya that has been named after the late playback singer.
A towering 40-foot-long and 12-foot-high sculpture of a veena engraved with a picture of Goddess Saraswati was installed at the chowk.
“The Veena of Maa Saraswati installed at Lata Mangeshkar Chowk in Ayodhya will become a symbol of musical harmony,” the PM said while virtually addressing the inauguration programme of the “Lata Mangeshkar Chowk” in Ayodhya.
“The 92 white lotuses of marble in the Chowk Complex depict Lata Ji’s lifespan,” said PM Modi.
He went on to say that Ram is on his way to the grand temple of Ayodhya, and that before that, the name of Lata didi, who has honoured the name of Ram in the hearts of crores of people, will be forever linked to the city of Ayodhya.
Further, he said, “I remember when Bhoomi Pujan for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya was done, I got a call from Lata didi. She was delighted… She couldn’t believe that the construction of the Ram Mandir was finally starting.”
