PM Modi holds virtual meet with UP CM Yogi Adityanath to review Ayodhya vision document
During the meeting with PM Modi, Yogi Adityanath presented plans for Ayodhya's development, including better roads, infrastructure, a railway station and an airport.
New Delhi/Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held a virtual meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to review development projects in Ayodhya.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath presented a future vision of Ayodhya's development which includes modernisation, roads, infrastructure, railway station, airport and other several pending projects.
The blueprint, which primarily includes the Ayodhya vision document, will be presented by principal secretary, housing and urban development, Deepak Kumar. Officials of Ayodhya Development Authority and district administration will also participate in the digital presentation.
The vision document envisages a grand new Ayodhya across the river Saryu, straddling adjoining districts of Gonda and Basti, linking the 1,200acre sprawling Smart Vedic City in the proximity of Ramjanmabhoomi and connecting the 300km peripheral pilgrimage route (84 Kos Parikrama) that carry the footprint of Lord Ram.
This is their second meeting this month; earlier this month, the Chief Minister was in the national capital for meetings with PM Modi and top BJP leaders, including Amit Shah and party chief JP Nadda amid reports of dissent in the party in his state.
In February, Yogi Adityanath said that the state government's proposal for an international airport in Ayodhya has been approved by the centre.
"The UP government's proposal for an international airport in Ayodhya has been approved by the centre. About Rs 1,000 crore has been allocated to the district administration by the state government. The central government has disbursed ₹ 250 crore," he had told news agency ANI.
Speaking about tourism and pilgrimage in Ayodhya, the chief minister had said, "Ayodhya is popular for Ramjanmabhoomi. Work in Ayodhya is going on for the construction of Lord Ram temple. Lakhs of devotees and pilgrims visit Ayodhya. The city offers an amalgamation of spirituality and tourism and both the central and state governments are working for its development."
