The petition which has been filed is claiming that the Bhumi Pujan at Ayodhya for the Ram Temple is a clear violation of the guidelines put forward in “Unlock 2.0” by the Central Government and demands the court to put a stay on the event in the interest of public health during a pandemic.

On Twitter, Gokhale said “I’ve filed a Letter PIL with the Allahabad High Court seeking a stay on the Ram Mandir event in Ayodhya in view of the Unlock 2.0 guidelines & in the interest of public health during a pandemic,”.
