Hardoi (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Oct 19 (ANI): Samajwadi Party (SP) Member of Parliament Naresh Agarwal on Thursday charged Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with politicising Lord Rama.
"The whole nation is seeing how Lord Rama is being politicised in Ayodhya. If they (UP government) hide their failures in the name of Lord Rama, the public will not accept it," Agarwal told ANI.
Agarwal also questioned the right of Adityanath to be chief minister.
"You can estimate how much the chief minister is concerned about Uttar Pradesh by the fact that he stayed in Gorakhpur for two out of the seven months into his tenure," Agarwal said.
Adityanath arrived in Ayodhya for the 'Deepotsav' at Saryu Ghat on Wednesday, where a record two lakh earthen oil lamps were illuminated on the banks of River Saryu.
Chants of 'Jai Shri Ram' echoed as actors essaying the roles of Lord Rama and Sita arrived by chopper to recreate Lord Rama's return from 14 years of exile to Ayodhya on the mythological 'Pushpak Viman'. (ANI)
