Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal and his Punjab counterpart, Bhagwant Mann, will visit Ayodhya on Monday to pay their obeisance to Ram Lalla at the newly constructed Ram Mandir.
During their visit to Ayodhya, families of both the leaders will also accompany them.
Earlier last month, Kejriwal had said he did not get a formal invitation to attend the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya but “it doesn’t matter” as he will visit the temple after the January 22 event.
“They had sent me a letter, and after we called them, they said a team would come to formally invite me. But no one came. But it doesn’t matter. In the letter, they wrote that a lot of VIPs and VVIPs would come to the event and, for security reasons, only one person would be allowed,” Kejriwal said before the consecration ceremony.
An idol of Ram Lalla was consecrated at the Ayodhya temple on January 22, a landmark event led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Lakhs of people watched the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony on television and social media at their homes and in neighbourhood temples, savouring the historic moment just months ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
