Ayodhya: With his visit to Ayodhya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday has set three records in a day. This visit to Ayodhya was made after 28 years.
PM Modi is the first-ever Prime Minister to visit Ram Janmabhoomi. He is also the first PM who offered prayers at Hanuman Garhi temple.
And thirdly, PM Modi has become the first Prime Minister to participate in the ‘bhumi pujan’ program of a temple that is a symbol of preservation of the cultural heritage of the country.
PM Modi had last visited Ayodhya in 1992. He was the convenor for the ‘Tiranga Yatra’ led by the then BJP President Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi which had begun in December 1991 and reached Ayodhya on January 18, 1992. This Yatra was organised to demand the abrogation of Article 370.
Coincidentally, today also marks one year since the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.
