Yogi Adityanath Ayodhya speech: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that state government will stand by both parties if they agree to resolve Ram Janmabhoomi issue through talks. “Government will stand by if both the parties agree to resolve Ram Janmabhoomi issue through talks, (Ayodhya mein Shri Ram janmbhoomi ke vivad ka baat-cheet ke madhyam se dono paksh samadhan ka marg nikal sake to sarkar apke sth khadi hai)” Adityanath said. He further announced a Rs 350 crore budget for delvelopment of the Ayodhya town.
The CM added that anyone who comes to Ayodhya starts chanting Jai Shri Ram himself. Adityanath, who was sharing the stage with Babri Masjid demolition accused Vinay Katiyar, said that while chants of ‘Radhe-Radhe’ are heard in Mathura, and Kashi (Varanasi) is famous for ‘Har-Har Mahadev’, Ayodhya is a town where people would start chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ themselves.
Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister offered prayers at the makeshift Ram temple here on his visit, first to the town by any chief minister in nearly 30 years. The visit assumes significance as it comes a day after criminal conspiracy charges were framed against top BJP leaders in the Babri mosque demolition case.
The UP CM also met Dharam Das, another accused against whom conspiracy charges were framed yesterday. On Tuesday, a special CBI court in Lucknow framed charges against BJP stalwarts L K Advani, M M Joshi, Uma Bharti and nine others in the 1992 Babri mosque demolition case. Adityanath had also met Advani before he appeared in the court on Tuesday.
