Stirring the Ram Mandir pot once again, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday exhorted his supporters to start preparing for the construction of a temple in Ayodhya with the same zeal with which they celebrated Ram Leela.Delivering his annual Vijayadashami speech in Gorakhpur, Mr. Adityanath said: “Along with the grandeur of the Ram Leelas, we should all also start preparing to build a grand temple in the same way in which grand Ram Leelas have been organised in the form of the temple,” Mr. Adityanath said. He, however, did not explain or clarify his remark, which was delivered in a winding sentence in Hindi. “I would appeal to all of you that along with the Leelas (enactment of the life) of Bhagwan Shri Ram, we must also incorporate his values into our lives and propagate it in the society,” said Mr. Adityanath.The CM said without Lord Ram, the path of public welfare would not be complete and hoped that his “grand ideal character” would inspire everyone.Mr. Adityanath, who is also the head priest of the Gorakhnath temple, participated in the customary Vijay Shobha Yatra from the temple.
