Yogi Adityanath visits Ram Janmabhoomi site in Ayodhya on Diwali

Answering Opposition's criticism on the grand Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya, the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said that no one can question his faith.

A day after the Uttar Pradesh government celebrated a grand Diwali in Ayodhya, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today visited the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi site and other temples in the town. Yogi Adityanath said that as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh he is "committed towards the development of every place in the state".

"People from across the country and world come to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi; I went there to inspect if the place is clean and safe (Shri Ram Janmabhoomi mein shradhalu desh aur duniya se aate hain, unki suraksha aur suvidha, saaf safai dekhne ke liye bhi wahan gaya tha)," the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said.

On Opposition's barbs at the Uttar Pradesh government for the mega Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya, Yogi Adityanath said it was a matter of "personal faith and how can the Opposition interfere in this". The Uttar Pradesh chief minister today visited Surgriva temple and Hanumangarhi temple in Ayodhya.

Ahead of the Assembly election in Gujarat, Yogi Adityanath said that he can campaign "wherever the party wants me to go". "(I) will go to Gujarat also to campaign if the party says so," he said.
