Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Ayodhya on Wednesday after a gap of 28 years. With this, he made three records together in a day.
Modi is the first-ever Prime Minister to visit Ram Janmabhoomi. Also, this is the first instance, when a Prime Minister has visited Hanuman Garhi to seek Lord Hanuman's blessings. And, Modi has become the first Prime Minister to participate in the 'bhumi pujan' program of a temple that is a symbol of preservation of the cultural heritage of the country.
Modi had visited Ayodhya in 1992 and had also addressed a gathering along with Murli Manohar Joshi at the GIC ground in Faizabad (Ayodhya). Thereafter, they had also visited Ram Lalla.
Modi was the convenor for the 'Tiranga Yatra' led by the then BJP President Dr Murli Manohar Joshi which had begun in December 1991 and reached Ayodhya on 18 January 1992. This Yatra was organised to demand the abrogation of Article 370. Wednesday also marks one year since article 370 was scrapped in J&K.
