'Prayed For 140 Crore Indians': PM Modi Offers Prayers At Ram Temple, Holds Mega Roadshow In Ayodhya
PM Modi's campaign trail continues with events in Jharkhand, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. He headlines events in Etawah, Dhaurahra, and Ayodhya

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday offered prayers at the Ram temple in Ayodhya before holding a mega roadshow in the holy town. The Prime Minister’s first visit to Ayodhya since the consecration at the shrine on January 22 came two days ahead of the third phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

In a televised ceremony, Modi was seen prostrating before the Ram Lalla idol at the newly constructed temple. After paying obeisance to Lord Ram, PM Modi took to X and wrote, “At Ayodhya, prayed to Prabhu Shri Ram for the well being of my fellow 140 crore Indians.”

For PM’s visit, the entrance gates to the temple were decorated with flowers. Replicas of a bow and an arrow made using flowers were also seen at various places. According to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, Ram Lalla seated in the temple wore a light pink attire on Sunday.

PM Modi later participated in a roadshow, along with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Amit Shah, seeking support for the sitting BJP MP from Faizabad, Lallu Singh and those contesting from the neighbouring districts.

People from different walks of life lined the road as Modi’s motorcade passed through.

Voting in the Faizabad Lok Sabha seat, under which the Ayodhya district falls, will take place in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha elections on May 20.

Earlier on Sunday, the Prime Minister latched on to a slip of the tongue of Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav, saying that now the Mulayam Singh Yadav’s brother is appealing to “make BJP win”.

Modi was addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah, the home district of SP founder late Mulayam Singh Yadav. In a recent election meeting at Jaswant Nagar in the presence of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav had made a gaffe by asking people to ensure that on May 7 “the BJP should win with a huge margin”.

Recalling Mulayam Singh Yadav’s statement about him, Modi said, “The Parliament session was going on. It was the last session of Parliament before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections when Mulayam Singh ji stood up to make a speech and said ‘You are going to win again’. It became a kind of blessing.” “Now Netaji is not among us but see the coincidence, his own brother is appealing to make BJP win. The words in his heart came to his tongue,” he said.
