Indore Mayor Pushyamitra Bhargava on Monday asked malls and shops in the Madhya Pradesh city to install replicas of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, with a subtle warning that those who fail to cooperate will have to face objections from the residents of the city.

Stating that a few people objected to it, Bhargava said on Monday, “We had requested all the malls, restaurants and institutions of the city to install replicas of the Ram temple... If Santa Claus and Christmas trees can be installed from December 25 to January 2 and you have no objection to that, then a replica of Ram Mandir should also be installed.”

“No one should have any objection in doing so and if people do not cooperate in this Rammay Utsav without any reason, then the people of Indore know how to respond to them. This is the work of Ram ji. It is the work for Ramrajya. I don’t think anyone should have any objection to this,” he added.

The Madhya Pradesh government is organising several programmes in various cities to commemorate the occasion.
