The Chief Minister further asserted that another reason why he came to Ayodhya was to check the security and other preparedness for thousands of devotees, who throng the temple town, on the occasion of Diwali.

"As the Chief Minister of the state, it is my duty and I am committed towards development of every place of the state," he added.

After offering prayers at a Temple in Ayodhya, Adityanath said that he has also come to Ayodhya to pray for peace, security and welfare of the state.

 

Adityanath offered prayers at Hanumangarhi Temple, Sugreev Temple and Ram Janam Bhumi in Ayodhya.
