He said, “Before the consecration ceremony of Lord Ram in Ayodhya, the inauguration of electric buses and e-rickshaws, as well as the launch of a tourism-centric mobile app and the official website of Ayodhya Police in Municipal Corporation and Ayodhya City, has been done to provide excellent public transportation facilities for the devotees coming for the event.”

Yogi said that Ayodhya is gearing up for the convenience of the devotees, faith-based travelers and tourists on this historic occasion. “The inauguration of infrastructure here was done by PM Modi on December 30 last year,” he said.

The Chief Minister said, “Presently, everyone will be amazed to see Ram Path, Bhakti Path, Dharma Path and Janmabhoomi Path in Ayodhya.

From multi-level parking to the construction of ghats from Guptar Ghat to Ram Ki Paidi and naya ghat, beautification programs for Surya Kund, Bharat Kund, everything will leave everyone spellbound.

In the same series, good tourist accommodation, construction of Dharamshala, good hotels and tent cities are also taking place for the convenience of the devotees during the consecration ceremony.”

He said that the electric buses, e-autos and other facilities are being started here to ensure that passengers coming to Ayodhya do not face any problem. “Not only that, through the digital tourism app, any devotee can get an overview of every spot in Ayodhya,” he said.

Extending congratulations and best wishes to the residents of Ayodhya, he said, “On this occasion, I congratulate and extend Makar Sankranti wishes to all Ayodhya residents. I extend my greetings to all the devotees coming to Ayodhya as well as residents of Ayodhya in advance.”

Yogi said, “Our generation has received this opportunity. After 500 years, Lord Ram will be seated in his magnificent temple. The country and the world are eagerly looking forward to the event. We are fortunate to receive his blessings here.”

The CM said that it is people’s responsibility to make Ayodhya clean and beautiful. “Infrastructure, widening of roads, railway lines, airport facilities, along with electric buses, will enhance the shine of Ayodhya. Their routes have already been determined. Approximately 200 electric buses are currently being provided to Ayodhya, but the government plans to increase it to 500,” he said.

Yogi said that the Transport department is actively involved in urban development in this regard. “The private sector should also be invited to contribute to this sector. Ayodhya is set to become the country’s first solar city, so we need to accelerate this program,” he said.

The CM said that through the tourist app, people can view and easily access every significant aspect of Ayodhya. “The app is available not only in English but also in languages listed in the Constitution, including Hindi and Sanskrit. This service will facilitate assistance from the police, locating police stations and outposts, accessing emergency services, understanding the roles of 1090 and 112 and officials are dedicated to help you.

Additionally, this information will be available on the official police website,” he said.

‘Yogi said, “Today, everyone desires to have the darshan of Ayodhya Dham. It is our privilege that we have the opportunity to contribute in the service of God. Therefore, we should leave no stone unturned to make it happen. Ayodhya is expected to become a global identity in line with the Prime Minister’s vision.”

He said that the cleanliness campaign has been initiated in Ayodhya on Sunday. “This campaign will continue across the state until January 21. From January 16 to January 22, there will be continuous recitation of the Ramayana and Ram Sankirtan in every temple. Whether at home or in temples, in villages or in cities, everyone is encouraged to participate in the continuous recitation of the Ramayana and Ram Sankirtan everywhere,” the CM said.

Yogi appealed to people to watch the consecration ceremony on January 22 live on screen. “Since Ayodhya is currently going through a phase of reconstruction, It would be good if there is no VIP movement here before January 22.

After the consecration ceremony, when people come here, they should not face any inconvenience, and those involved in the arrangements should not face any inconvenience either,” he said.

The CM said, “Those who have been invited by the trust will be present here. For those who cannot come here, they should watch the live broadcast. Later, when they get the opportunity, they can come to Ayodhya and have the darshan of Lord Ram. We will be delighted to welcome them,” he added.
