PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday held a rally in Ayodhya after five years. The last time he did was as a Prime Ministerial candidate for the BJP in 2014. PM Modi will be holding two mega-rallies in the city. The holy town has been central to the BJP and its Hindutva affiliates' agitation for a Ram temple at what many believe to be the birthplace of Lord Ram.
During his speech, the PM slammed the gathbandhan for misusing the names of Babasaheb Ambedkar and Ram Manohar Lohia.
"Be it SP, BSP or Congress, it's necessary to know their reality. Behen ji used the name of Babasaheb Ambedkar but she did everything just the opposite of his principles. SP used the name of Lohia ji but they destroyed the law & order situation in UP," he said.
The Supreme Court-appointed mediators in the Ayodhya case issued on March 13 an order following the first day of their discussions with stakeholders at the Awadh university at Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh.
