Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a rally in a place near Ayodhya, the part of the Lok Sabha seat which has been crux of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute, which is the first time since coming to power in 2014 .
PM Modi will face off Uttar Pradesh’s grand alliance popularly known as the mahagathbandhan leaders Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati in the area.
Modi participated at the rally which was held in Maya Bazaar which is just 25 km from the area of dispute. It may be noted that the area falls under the neighbouring Ambedkar Nagar parliamentary seat and not the Faizabad seat.
On the other hand, Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati have set their joint rally at Ram Snehi Ghat, a location that is on the border of Uttar Pradesh’s Barabanki and Ayodhya districts and 70 km from the temple town.
