diwali

With the BJP in power, Dussehra and Diwali festivals are set to be celebrated in a grand manner in Lord Rama’s birth place Ayodhya this time, marking resumption of the government-supported tradition stopped about two years back.

“On this Dussehra, Ayodhya will be decorated with lights to recall defeat of Ravana at the hands of Lord Rama,” Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath told reporters in Gorakhpur.  “On Diwali, a grand programme will be held in Ayodhya in which sadhu-saints will also participate. I will also invite Govenor for this,” he added. This is for the first time that the state government has made announcement about holding a grand function on Diwali in Ayodhya in an attempt to bring it back into the limelight. According to the plans, prominent buildings along Saryu Ghat will be decorated and illuminated and the celebration will be attended by the governor, the chief minister and ministers. The detailed programme is still to be finalised. We are working on it,” a senior official told PTI.

He said the state tourism department has been made nodal agency for the programme while other departments will also oversee the events. The state government said the objective of the programme is to develop Ayodhya as a tourism spot.
