Uddhav Thackeray's visit to Ayodhya is only to gain votes: Congress’ Ashok Chavan

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray announced that he will visit Ayodhya on November 25 while criticising BJP for not being able to construct Ram Mandir


Ahead of Maharashtra and Lok Sabha elections next year, there have been a lot of talks about Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray visiting Ayodhya on November 25. Maharashtra Congress President Ashok Chavan on Tuesday lashed out at Thackeray and said that the issue of Ram Mandir was raised to mislead voters and in the wake of elections in five states. 

While addressing the media during a press conference, Chavan said that Thackeray’s visit to Ayodhya is to gain votes. Earlier at Dussehra Melava, the Shiv Sena chief announced that he will visit Ayodhya to participate in a movement to build Ram Mandir.

During his visit to Ayodhya, Uddhav Thackeray is expected to meet with Saint community to discuss the Ram Mandir issue. Thackeray had earlier said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came into power after promising to build Ram Mandir but did nothing about it. 

However, Chavan took a dig at Uddhav Thackeray over his Ayodhya tour and said that the Shiv Sena chief has expressed his desire to visit Ayodhya ahead of the upcoming elections next year and Assembly elections in five states. Chavan claimed that this is just a political game to gain votes.
