Ayodhya: With the countdown to the historic Ram Mandir Inauguration in Ayodhya underway, RJD MLA Ajay Yadav has ignited a storm of controversy with his recent inflammatory remarks. During an event, Yadav was quoted asserting that the BJP plans to "organize a bomb blast" on January 22, 2024, the day slated for the consecration of the Ramalala idol.

Videos circulating on social media capture the MLA alleging that the BJP intends to orchestrate a bomb blast targeting all Ram devotees attending the grand event. Shockingly, Yadav goes on to claim that the BJP would use this incident to incite religious tensions, subsequently blaming Pakistan, its terrorists, and Muslims.
