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.

Judicial Magistrate First Class Prachi Patel on Monday convicted Sushma Trivedi, Sandhya Tiwari and S.K. Shrivastava under the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act, public prosecutor Ritesh Goyal said.₹5,000 fine The doctors were given three years’ imprisonment and the court slapped a fine of ₹5,000 on two of them — Sandhya Tiwari and S.K. Shrivastava — for running clinics without legal permission, he said.Mr. Goyal said a Delhi-based social organisation called Beti Bachao Samiti had conducted a sting operation separately on these three doctors in May 2009. In the sting operation, these doctors agreed to carry out sex-determination and female foeticide procedures in their clinics, he said. The organisation approached the District Collector with the recording of the sting operation, who directed the Chief Medical and Health Officer to file a case against the three under the PCPNDT Act, he said. The court found them guilty under section 23 of the PCPNDT Act.
