UP CM Yogi Adityanath offers prayers at makeshift Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Adityanath’s visit comes a day after the crucial Babri Masjid hearing in which senior BJP leaders were slapped with charges of criminal conspiracy.
This is Adityanath’s first visit, post taking charge as Chief Minister.
Yesterday, he had paid a visit to BJP veterans Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and Uma Bharti, who had come to Lucknow to appear before a special Central Bureau of Investigation court in the Babri Masjid demolition case.
In a major setback to Advani, Joshi and Uma, the court yesterday rejected their discharge application, framing charges against them and the other nine accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case.
Charges of criminal conspiracy under section 120 (B) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) have been framed.
