UP CM Yogi Reaffirms Plans for Ram Mandir & Statue in Ayodhya
Yogi Adityanath said he had undertaken a survey to identify the site where the Ram statue would be built.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday, 7 November, assured that the government would build a Ram Mandir and a statue in Ayodhya.
Addressing the media, Yogi – who is celebrating Diwali in Ayodhya – said he had undertaken a survey to identify the site where the statue would be built. He further added that the identity of Ayodhya was through Lord Ram and his government would keep this identity intact.
“Ayodhya’s identity is with Lord Ram. We will honour all commitments through which faith will be respected, and Ayodhya’s identity will remain intact.”
Yogi also reaffirmed his government’s dream for the Ram Mandir to be built on the disputed site. Reiterating the famous catchphrase “Mandir yahin banega,” Yogi said:
Everybody knows the Ram Lalla shrine is here, and people come here for darshan of Lord Ram, and not for any other reason. The mandir was here, is here, and will remain here. (Mandir yahan tha, hai or rahega.)
He added that a favourable decision would soon take shape over the disputed site.
Detailing his plans for Ayodhya, Yogi said he had directed the local administration to take steps towards identifying a site and building an airport to increase the ease for tourists.
“Ayodhya will soon be among some of the world-class cities.”
Yogi’s statements come a day after he announced his government’s decision to rename Faizabad district as “Sri Ayodhya”.
