Driven to create a ‘saffron’ environment in the city, Shiv Sena Party Chiefs, headed by Uddhav Thackeray arrive in Ayodhya on Saturday for a two-day visit on November 24-25 to pursue their ‘Chalo Ayodhya’ movement.

Ahead of Thackeray’s visit to the temple, five layers of security have been deployed, and devotees could be seen queued up.
Thackeray arrived in Ayodhya with his family on November 24 afternoon, also accompanied with more than 2200 Shiv Sainiks. The Shiv Sena leader also made a statement saying that Modi Government should bring an Ordinance and announce a date for Ram Mandir.
Parallel to Shiv Sena, VHP, too, is pushing the agenda of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya where they are expected to gather 2 lakh people. They are scheduled to hold a ‘Dharma Sabha’ in Ayodhya.
Since the Supreme Court bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi adjourned the hearing of Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid title suit back in October to the first week of January, the clamor for a potential Legislative solution has only grown.
