The demand for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya reached its peak as soon as the Bharatiya Janata Party registered a thumping victory in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. The Shiv Sena is also now stepping up the pressure on ally BJP for construction of Ram temple.
According to the sources, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will be visiting yodhya with all the 18 Lok Sabha MPs of the party before the beginning of the monsoon session of Parliament. As per the information from the sources, Uddhav Thackeray is likely to be in Ayodhya from June 15 till June 17. "There will be an announcement about the visit soon. Uddhav-ji will elaborate on the visit and the party's stand," the sources added.
"It is true that Thackeray has decided to visit Ayodhya. The plan is to visit before the parliament session starts on June 17," India Today quoted Harshal Pradhan. "There will be an announcement about the visit soon. Uddhav-ji will elaborate on the visit and the party's stand," he added.
Harshal Pradhan is a close aide of Uddhav Thackeray and media in-charge of the Shiv Sena.
Interestingly, the arrival of Shiv Sena chief and 18 MPs of Maharashtra will be on the same day when the seers are expected to pass a resolution asking for the construction of Ram Mandir from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It is to be noted that the Shiv Sena chief had visited Ayodhya in November last year and demanded that Ram temple be constructed at the disputed site before the Lok Sabha elections. Thackeray had also performed ‘Sarayu Aarati’ (offer prayers to River Sarayu).
