Lucknow: Keshav Prasad Maurya, the state's deputy chief minister, has come up with a new campaign message ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections. 'Ayodhya is our son, now it is the time of Kashi-Mathura,' stated Keshav Prasad Maurya in a media interview. The construction of Lord Ramlala's great temple in Ayodhya, according to Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, has provided delight to believers.
He said that, much like we used to chant during the movement, it was now our turn to go to Kashi-Mathura from Ayodhya. We own both Kashi and Mathura. In Kashi, the corridor has been built. Now it's Krishna Janmabhoomi Mathura's time. The entire project is being carried out under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership and with the people's blessings. PM Modi will do Jal Abhishek and pujan of Baba Vishwanath with 11 archaks on December 13, according to Keshav Prasad Maurya. PM Modi will spend two days at Kashi, the birthplace of Baba Vishwanath. The archaks of Dwadash Jyotirlinga are also invited to the function. On the occasion of the opening of the Kashi Vishwanath corridor, Pithadhiswar and Dharma Acharya of the four benches will also be present. The All India Saints Committee is in responsible of this.
He went on to say that Rs 600 crore was spent on the Kashi Vishwanath corridor from acquisition to development. There have been several ancient temples and vigrahas found. In this corridor, a sequence of 125 small and large temples and vigrahas has been erected. He said that repair work on the Kashi Vishwanath Temple complex had been completed after 245 years. Ahilyabai had already repaired the temple.
