4 mins read

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that development projects worth Rs 32,000 crores were being implemented in Ayodhya, which is not being done in any other city of the country, and once these projects get on the city will transform into one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

Addressing a public meeting organised at the abode of Yojiraj Bharat in Nandigram, Bharat Kund, on the occasion of the completion of 9 years of Modi government, Yogi said, “One of the key milestones will be installation of the idol of Lord Ram in his own temple after a wait of 500 years. This historic event is scheduled for January and will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, enhancing Ayodhya’s significance on a global scale,” he said.

He said that the government has already announced plans to develop Ayodhya as a major tourist destination, with the construction of a grand Ram Temple and other infrastructural developments. “The main railway station is undergoing extensive development, while railway projects in Surya Kund and Bharat Kund are set to commence soon,” he said.

The CM said, “Ayodhya will also get its own international airport which is expected to be completed within this year. This is expected to boost the local economy and create employment opportunities for the people of Ayodhya.”

He said, “Ayodhya holds a special place in the hearts of millions of people and even for those who were not fortunate enough to be born here desire for the opportunity. The people have a strong sense of Lord Ram’s presence in their lives, and the construction of the temple will be a manifestation of their devotion and belief.”

Yogi said that Ayodhya has become a city that every major city aspires to connect with. “Ayodhya has transformed into the new Ayodhya,” he said.

Setting up a target of lighting 21 lakh lamps during the upcoming Deepotsav, he called for lighting of lamps in every household of Ayodhya, in addition to the Ghats, Math-Temples, Surya Kund and Bharat Kund. “The preparations for this should commence from now itself, as it sets the stage for the arrival of Lord Ram in his home next year,” he said.

The CM highlighted the growing reputation of India on the global stage and the improved security situation under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. He urged the people to participate in the upcoming Yoga Mahotsav, which is scheduled for June 21.

He said, “Under the leadership of PM Modi, the New India has gained global recognition and respect. The successful leadership of PM Modi will continue to receive the blessings of people, leading India to become the world’s third-largest economy. This will raise the per capita income and enhance overall connectivity across the nation.”

Yogi emphasised on the transformation of improved infrastructure in Ayodhya which has been made possible due to the efforts of the government. “In the past, the city road and rail networks were poor. However, due to recent development, the journey from Gorakhpur and Lucknow to Ayodhya, which previously took five to six hours, can now be completed in just one hour,” he said.

He recognised the need of working together with the mayor of Ayodhya. He highlighted the effectiveness of a double engine government, wherein the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government works together to ensure comprehensive development and public welfare in municipal bodies.

The CM said that Ayodhya is becoming the most prosperous city and district. He compared it to the ancient Treta Yuga period, when Ram Rajya, an ideal form of government, was accomplished. “Under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi, Ayodhya today not only embodies the spirit of Ram Rajya but also inspires the entire nation,” he said.

He highlighted that just six years ago, there was hesitation in uttering the name of Ayodhya. However, under his government’s steadfast commitment to the city’s development, Ayodhya has witnessed remarkable progress and a renewed sense of pride.

Yogi mentioned about his recent visit to Surya Kund. He recalled that when he visited there 3 to 4 years back, it was in a dilapidated condition. “But now, it has been transformed, which now serves as a testament to the vision of Ayodhya’s development,’ he said.

He also inquired about the current condition of Surya Kund from the people. He urged the public representatives to organise light and sound shows at 8 pm allowing the residents to experience the mesmerising beauty of the area. He also emphasised the importance of showcasing other sites associated with Lord Ram, such as Guptar Ghat, to the local community, specially women.

The CM emphasised that the once-deserted areas associated with Lord Ram’s legacy are now shining brightly, symbolising the transformation of Ayodhya. He expressed his commitment to making Ayodhya the most beautiful city in the world and developing Bharat Kund, similar to the success of Surya Kund.

He said, “The meditation place of Mahatma Bharat will be brought to life with mesmerising light and sound displays. The pond will be beautified and efforts will be made to rehabilitate the people residing in the vicinity.”

Yogi said that initially there would be difficulties during the development work, but to achieve the big goal, one has to face obstacles.

Expressing his vision for the roads of Ayodhya, he said that within the next four to six months, they will resemble the iconic Raj Path in Delhi. The road going from behind Hanuman Garhi near Sugriva Fort to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi is going to be a glorious path in the form of Bhakti Path.

The CM said, “Under PM Modi’s leadership, Ayodhya, Mathura-Vrindavan, Prayagraj, Shravasti, Naimish Tirtha, Kashi, and Kushinagar are being developed. There is no dearth of money for development. For us, public and the state are family. We have stopped loot of public money and by using that money we are investing in development.”

He expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work during a period marked by the successful leadership of PM Modi. He emphasised the need for a development-oriented government that is committed to public welfare and preserves India’s rich heritage.
