Yogi Adityanath highlighted ideas for Ayodhya’s development, including better roads, infrastructure, a railway station, and an airport, during his meeting with PM Modi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today at a virtual conference with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to review development projects in the shrine town that Ayodhya should reflect the “finest of our traditions and the best of our developmental transformations.”
This is their second meeting this month; the Chief Minister was in the national capital earlier this month for meetings with Prime Minister Modi and top BJP leaders, including Amit Shah and party chief JP Nadda, amid allegations of dissent within the party in his state.
Yogi Adityanath outlined ideas for the development of Ayodhya at today’s conference, including better roads, infrastructure, a railway station, and an airport. According to government officials, PM Modi defined Ayodhya as a city that is “etched in the cultural psyche of every Indian.”
“Ayodhya is spiritual as well as sublime. The city’s human ethos must be matched by cutting-edge infrastructure that benefits everyone, including tourists and pilgrims “According to reports, the Prime Minister stated that development work in the town will continue in the near future. Ayodhya, he said, is a “city by and for every Indian.”
The Prime Minister and Chief Minister met just days after allegations of an illegal land sale were made against the Ayodhya Ram Temple Trust.
The Uttar Pradesh government announced various efforts to promote Ayodhya as a major religious tourism destination ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for the projected Ram temple last year. Yogi Adityanath stated a plan for an airport in 2018. Ayodhya currently has an airstrip for VIPs to utilize.
