Day after Babri hearing, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visits Ayodhya

This is Yogi Adityanath's first visit to Ayodhya after taking over as the chief minister in March this year.

"We will try for an amicable solution to the Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi dispute, within the ambit of law".

He was addressing a small gathering called at the birthday celebrations of VHP leader Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, president of the Ram Janambhoomi Nyas Trust, an organisation formed to promote the construction of a Ram temple at the disputed site. A year later, the disputed structure was demolished by the frenzied karsewaks. "It was, it is and it will remain Ram Janmbhoomi (birthplace)", Sakshi Maharaj said. "I am aware of your sentiments", he said after beginning his speech with the "Jai Shri Ram" chant and repeating it thrice.

Training guns on the previous Samajwadi Party government in the state, he said, "The previous government didn't focus on Ayodhya".

The accused will now move the Allahabad High Court against the CBI court's order. "Even Supreme Court wants that", he said. This would have been in line with the top court's assessment that it would be best to settle the dispute amicably. Chief Justice JS Khehar offered to mediate, if required. The Chief Minister said that due to the step motherly treatment of the previous Samajwadi and Bahujan Samaj Party governments, Ayodhya and Saryu have not got the respect they deserve because of their historical and religious importance.

Adityanath had paid a visit to BJP stalwarts Advani and others who had come to Lucknow to appear before a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in the Babri Masjid demolition case. After the project is complete it would enable a person to reach one end of UP to the other in nearly 12 hours.

Adityanath reached Faizabad, the twin city of Ayodhya, in the morning and prayed at the Hanumangarhi Temple.
