News Desk: Addressing an event organised at the Ram Katha Park by the Uttar Pradesh government as part of Deepotsav celebrations, on Wednesday, chief minister Yogi Adityanath said that no power in the world can stop the construction of Ram Mandir and it’s completion by 2023. Training guns at his arch rival Samajwadi Party, he said that those who fired at Ram Bhakts 30 years ago are now bowing their head before them.
He said “Earlier the state’s money used to be spent on land for kabristan. Today money is being spent on upgrade and facelift of temples”
The construction of a majestic Ram temple is underway in Ayodhya and various other projects are being implemented by the central government for facelift of 500 temples and other religious sites in Uttar Pradesh, he said.
Of these, the work has been completed at more than 300 sites and the work in the remaining sites will be completed in the next two months, he said.
“This is the difference in thinking. Those in love with kabristan used to spend public money there, those who love ‘dharma’ and ‘sanskriti’ are spending the money on them” he added.
Talking about the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, Yogi Adityanath trained guns at the Opposition parties who governed the state earlier, saying 30 years ago chanting of Jai Shri Ram was considered as a crime.
He said the construction of the Ram temple has finally begun after the Prime Minister laid its foundation last year, and gave the credit to the strength of democracy and people.
“Those who were firing at you 30 years ago, they are bowing before your strength” he said, adding “Ram united everybody. This is the power of Ram”
“No power in the world can now stop the construction of Ram Mandir and its completion by 2023” he added.
