Faizabad district to be renamed as Ayodhya, says Yogi Adityanath
"Ayodhya is a symbol of our 'aan, baan aur shaan' (honour, pride and prestige)," he said at a grand "Deepotsav" event organised in the pilgrim town, about 120 km from state capital Lucknow.
Several projects, including those related to the redevelopment and beautification of "Ram Ki Paidi" and the stoppage of sewage disposal in the Sarayu river, were launched at the event.
A section of the crowd was also heard chanting "Mandir ka nirman karao" (build a temple). In his address, Adityanath also hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and described the projects undertaken by the latter as akin to a "Ram Rajya".
