Mumbai: Head of the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya next year on January 22, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said that the concept of "Vikshit Bharat" is like Lord Ram's Ram Rajya.
Speaking at an event, Fadvanis said, "The concept of 'Vikshit Bharat' is like Lord Ram's Ram Rajya, in which the last person will be equal to the king and there will be no difference".
