Ayodhya set to emerge as a global city by 2024
Lucknow: With development projects worth Rs 20,000 crore in progress in Ayodhya, of which projects worth Rs 1700 crore will be completed by December this year, the holy city of Lord Shri Ram is emerging as a global city, thanks to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s efforts.
With his unwavering faith in MaryadaPurushottam Lord Shri Ram, CM Yogi has left no stone unturned to develop Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Shri Ram, which was considered politically untouchable five years ago, into a global city of great tourist attraction.
As Most of the projects being carried out by various departments on behalf of the government will be completed before 2024, Ayodhya will emerge as a global city by the same year. The projects in Ayodhya include among others Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Corridor being built on the lines of Kashi Vishwanath Dham corridor and MaryadaPurushottam Shri Ram International Airport.
Besides, the Uttar Pradesh Housing and Development Council is spending Rs 3,000 crore to develop a green field township in Ayodhya. About 83 per cent of the land has been procured so far for the project, which is scheduled to be completed by March 2024.
