Faizabad will now be known as Sri Ayodhya

Wednesday, November 07, 2018

New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday announced that Faizabad would be renamed as Sri Ayodhya as his administration continues on its renaming spree that started last month.

Addressing a huge gathering in Ayodhya ahead of Diwali, Adityanath said that the Faizabad district, of which Ayodhya city is a part, would be known by its “original name”.

“We have come to assure you that no power can do injustice with Ayodhya. Every Indian knows what Ayodhya wants,” he said, alluding to the construction of the Ram Mandir at the disputed Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi site.He also announced that an airport will be built in Ayodhya and it would be named after Lord Ram and a new medical college will be made and it will be named after Raja Dashrath, the father of Lord Ram. The CM’s announcement, which he himself had described as “good news”, is being largely seen as a Hindutva push by the BJP before next year's Lok Sabha elections.
