Ayodhya: Ayodhya is the favorite city of Lord Shri Ram and the double engine government is determined to develop it as the most beautiful city in the world. Compared to the number of tourists coming to Ayodhya today, 10 times more tourists will start coming here after the upcoming Makar Sankranti and the inauguration of the grand Ram temple on 22 January 2024.
Therefore, the people of Ayodhya should make the resolve of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ from now on. The people of Ayodhya should start preparations for that historic program from now on. These things were said by the CM Yogi. Lord Shri Ram, Mata Janaki and Laxman ji were present in Ramkatha Park on the occasion of Deepotsav on Saturday – Chief Minister appealed to the people of Ayodhya after paying obeisance to Shri Ram, Janaki and Laxman ji in Ayodhya*
PM Modi’s welcome in Ayodhya should be historic
In his address, the Chief Minister said that when the Deepotsav program started here in 2017, there was enthusiasm and desire among the people of Ayodhya. A slogan echoed that “Yogi ji do one thing, build the temple…”. Today, after 500 years of sacrifices, movements and campaigns, Lord Shri Ram is going to sit in his grand temple. Now it is the responsibility of the people of Ayodhya that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi comes on January 22 to enshrine Lord Shri Ram in his grand temple, then his welcome in Ayodhya should also be historic.
We all are seeing new Ayodhya being built
While congratulating everyone on Diwali, the Chief Minister said that we all are fortunate that we are witnessing the festival of lights here. This festival of lights is happening live in more than 100 countries of the world. The world is watching how Lord Shri Ram would have come to Ayodhya in Pushpak Viman thousands of years ago and how the gods would have showered flowers from the sky. When we started this program seven years ago, there was confusion. The program which was started here at that time with the cooperation of revered saints and public representatives, is today realizing the Prime Minister’s vision of Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat. We all are seeing the new Ayodhya being built. Currently, work is being done on 178 development projects worth Rs 30 thousand 500 crore in Ayodhya. If the participation of the private sector is also added, then in the coming time, projects worth Rs 50 thousand crores will be seen taking shape here. This will create lakhs of jobs.
Prime Minister is realizing the vision of Ramrajya
The Chief Minister said that the Prime Minister has strengthened the vision of Lord Shri Ram’s Ramrajya in the last 9 and a half years. Be it a natural calamity, the problem of terrorism or other problems, work has been done for the welfare of the poor by eliminating fears. Free arrangements for housing, toilets, electricity connection and insurance of Rs 5 lakh have been made for the poor for their treatment. Not only this, the work of providing free tests, free treatment, free vaccine and free food grains is being done since the Corona period.
