Yogi Adityanath Says Ram Statue will be Ayodhya’s New Identity

Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has announced that the new Ram statue will become Ayodhya’s new identity. He gave this major announcement on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, a day after announcing a flurry of projects in Faizabad.

Several architects and designers have done surveys and suggested their designs and ideas for the Ram statue. He said that a grand statue will be constructed in Ayodhya and will be a signpost for Ayodhya. He said that the particulars of the statue will be decided according to the land available. The temple was here and will be here, but whatever happens, will happen within the parameters of the constitution of India. A few months ago, the proposal to construct a statue was discussed by the UP government after several meetings with the top officials of the culture and tourism ministry of the state in order to give a boost to the tourism industry in Ayodhya.

Here’s what Yogi Adityanath said “Ayodhya’s identity is associated with Maryada Purshottam Bhagwan Shri Ram. There will be a statue for worshipping inside the temple but the other one will establish the town’s identity”. Yogi visited two locations to be considered for the site of the statue. He said that people come to Ayodhya for darshan (seeing the lord) and do his smaran (remembering Lord Ram) and the statue will fulfil both the purposes.

Yogi Adityanath made another big announcement that Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad district will now be known as ‘Ayodhya’ which is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Ram’s. He also mentions Ayodhya is a symbol of our ‘aan’, ‘baan’, and ‘shaan’ which means honour, prestige and pride.

Adityanath said that a home for widows and orphaned children will be constructed in town and named after Kaushalya, who is Lord Ram’s mother. He also said that in the coming days Ayodhya will be counted as one of the best cities….and Ayodhya’s development is our top priority.
