Deccan Chronicle - - FRONT PAGE -

Af­ter two post­pone­ments, UP Chief Min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath will fi­nally visit Ay­o­d­hya on Wed­nes­day.

He was ear­lier sched­uled to visit Ay­o­d­hya in March and then in April but both the pro­grammes were post­poned.

He will be the first Chief Min­is­ter in 26 years to visit Ay­o­d­hya. The last chief min­is­ter who vis­ited Ay­o­d­hya was Mr Kalyan Singh, who went there with his cabi­net in 1991.

The Chief Min­is­ter, in Ay­o­d­hya, will re­view the devel­op­ment work in the Faiz­abad-Ay­o­d­hya di­vi­sion.

He will also at­tend the ‘Janamot­sav’ of Ma­hant Nritya Gopal Das, chief trustee of Ram Janamb­hoomi Nyas in Ay­o­d­hya.

Later, the Chief Min­is­ter will visit the Hanu­man Garhi tem­ple and the banks of Saryu River.

It is not yet known whether Yogi Adityanath will of­fer prayers at the makeshift Ram tem­ple at the dis­puted site but sources said that he may go there since it is lo­cated at a short dis­tance from Hanu­man Garhi.

He will in­ter­act with party work­ers in the au­di­to­rium of the Avadh Univer­sity and then hold a meet­ing with se­nior of­fi­cials of the di­vi­sion. The devel­op­ment of Ay­o­d­hya as a tourist cen­tre will be on the agenda.

Chief Min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath will in­spect the Deen­bandhu eye hos­pi­tal and then at­tend the Janamot­sav pro­gramme of Ma­hant Nritya Gopal Das.

He will then in­au­gu­rate the pass­port ser­vices in a lo­cal post of­fice be­fore re­turn­ing to Luc­know on Wed­nes­day evening.
