The 45-day-long nationwide Ram Temple Nidhi Samarpan campaign, the fundraising drive for the construction of Ayodhya's Ram Mandir, concluded on Saturday after having collected nearly Rs 2,100 crore.

Led by the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), the fundraising campaign kickstarted last year on Makar Sankranti. In a press note, VHP said that the campaign recorded "unforgettable, astonishing and heart-warming" memories.

Advocate Alok Kumar, the central working president of VHP and national convenor of this campaign said on Sunday that not only through this "biggest campaign of the world, four million dedicated karyakartas forming part of one million teams, went from door to door, in states, cities, towns, districts, tehsils and villages to receive the dedicated funds, but also the devotion, faith and dedication shown by the contributors towards Ramji was uplifting and soul-stirring".

At the time of its launch, the campaign was estimated to raise Rs 1,100 crore, but the unprecedented public participation helped the fundraising drive collect much more than the anticipated amount.

"Crores of Hindu families from millions of villages, towns and cities connected with this campaign with love, affection and fondness. In the course of this drive, the Karyakartas had rendezvous with many emotional moments and situations and also they saw many people contributing beyond their ability," the VHP press note quoted Alok Kumar as saying.
