The grand Diwali show mounted in Ayodhya by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday earned him plaudits from large sections of society. For the last 25 years, Ayodhya had been at the centre of controversy for people across the world. Many people have been making negative remarks about this holy city, the birthplace of Lord Ram.
The Ramjanmabhoomi controversay had been, and continues to be the bone of contention between the two communities.
On Wednesday, however, people across the world saw Yogi Adityanath presenting the positive side of the heritage of Ayodhya. He sought to create a world record of lighting diyas on the banks of Saryu river, and the holy town was decked with lights alongwith a beautiful laser show.
Celebrations apart, Yogi Adityanath sent out a message on what an ideal Ram Rajya should be. A Ram Rajya where the poor get houses and every house gets electricity. He spoke of Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas, and used the metaphors of Lord Ram and the rich heritage of Ayodhya. Nobody should have any objections to Yogi's viewpoint. This is a welcome gesture.
