UP CM Yogi Adityanath says good news may come soon while inaugurating Ram Katha in Gorakhpur
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said lord Rama was the life source of people and added that perhaps a “big moment of happiness” was due in the near future. He was speaking at Gorakhpur during inauguration of nine-day-long Ram Katha rendition by Murari Bapu on Saturday.
Adityanath said it was Gorakhpur’s good fortune to hear Ram Katha (story of lord Ram) during the auspicious occasion of Hindu festival of Navratra from none other than Murari Bapu- a religious preacher and well known member of the saint society.
“Whenever people are faced with any problems in their daily lives, references from lord Ram’s life guides them even today. Ram lives in people’s breaths.” Yogi said while speaking about the importance of Ram Katha.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister’s comments come while hearings on the contentious Ayodhya land title dispute in the Supreme Court continue. The court has set a deadline of October 17 for finishing arguments in the case. However, no date is set for a verdict.
On September 26, the Chief Justice of India had said the bench will have only four weeks to write the judgment and it will be a “miracle” if the court delivers the judgment in four weeks. Justice Gogoi retires as the CJI on November 17.
Aditynath, had earlier this year in June, told saints in Ayodhya that “all obstacles in the construction of Ram Mandir will be removed soon.” He was there for the inauguration of the 81st birthday celebrations of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, head of the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas.
The five-judge SC bench started holding daily hearings from August to fast-track the case that has been pending for decades after a Supreme Court appointed mediation committee failed to develop a consensus among the parties to arrive at an amicable resolution.
SC is hearing a challenge to the Allahabad High Court verdict that divided the disputed site equally between the Muslims, the Hindus and the Nirmohi Akhara sect. Control of the main disputed section, where the Babri mosque was torn down, was given to Hindus.
