Udaipur: After the erstwhile royal family of Jaipur, the former Mewar royal family and the Rajasthan transport minister have claimed they are the descendants of Lord Rama.
"It is historically proven that my family is direct descendants of Shree Ram. We do not wish to stake any claim on Ram Janma Bhumi but believe that Shree Ram Temple must be built at Ram Janma Bhumi in Ayodhya," Arvind Singh Mewar of the erstwhile royal family in Udaipur tweeted.
State Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas too said, "We Suryavanshi Rajputs are descendants of Lord Rama. There is no second opinion (about this)."
He said there are descendants of Lord Rama all over the world, including his family.
The claims to having Lord Rama's lineage have been made after the Supreme Court on Friday sought to know whether anyone from the 'Raghuvansha' was still living in Ayodhya.
The Rajasthan minister said he will provide the proof to the court if it is required.
The court should expedite the hearing and give its decision at the earliest, he added.
The minister is not alone in claiming to be a descendant of Rama. On Sunday, BJP lawmaker and member of the erstwhile Jaipur royal family Diya Kumari said her family descended from Lord Rama's son Kush.
"(The) Court has said where are the descendants of Lord Rama... Descendants of Lord Rama are all over the world, including our family who descended from his son Kush," Kumari said.
The Rajsamand MP said what she is saying is "a fact" based on manuscripts, genealogy and documents present with the royal family.
Kumari said a solution to the land dispute in Ayodhya should be found soon and a Ram temple be built there by removing the hurdles in its way.
The Supreme Court is holding a day-to-day hearing in the case.
