CM Yogi Adityanath visits Ayodhya, seeks Lord Ram's blessings on Diwali
The development of 500 temples was carried out in UP
Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, paid a visit to Ayodhya's Ram Janambhoomi Temple Complex and offered prayers to 'Ram Lalla.' On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, the Chief Minister sought the blessings of the presiding deity and prayed for the overall well-being and prosperity of the people of Uttar Pradesh.
The Chief Minister launched a series of cultural events on Wednesday to celebrate the start of 'Deepotsav,' the major Diwali celebrations in the holy city.
During the occasion, the BJP leader also saw the lighting of 12 lakh clay diyas in Ayodhya. CM Yogi Adityanath stated at the 'Deepotsav' celebrations that the Ram Temple building will be completed soon.
The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh disclosed that he is the third generation of his family to be involved in the Ram Temple movement."The construction work of Ram Temple is going on full swing. The construction of Ram Temple is the biggest movement in the history of India,"he stated
The former Mulayam Singh Yadav-led government in the state was also chastised by CM Yogi for "obstructing" the temple's construction and "firing upon" the Kar Sevaks.
"I have not forgotten the day when you had asked me for the Ram Temple. I am keeping my promise. There was a time when the religious volunteers or Kar Sevaks were fired upon on 30 October 1990. There was a time when taking the name of Lord Ram and talking about destruction was considered the greatest sin. But this is a democracy, your faith and belief led to the construction of Ram temple today," stated CM Yogi.
He further added that "with patience, we can definitely get success. We work to connect everyone, but there are people who come in disguise, we need to recognize them."
"The development of 500 temples was carried out in UP, in which the work of 300 temples has been completed, the work of remaining 200 temples will be completed in two months," the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister stated when asked about the progress of the Ram Temple construction.
Along with the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the temples of Lord Shankar and Vindhyavasini are being built in Kashi, according to the Chief Minister.
