After the celebration of Dussehra in Mumbai, Ram Janambhoomi Mandir Nirman Nyas President Janmejay Sharan Maharaj has invited Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to Ayodhya saying that Ram Mandir cannot be built without Shiv Sena’s muscle power.

Thackeray will announce the dates of his visit after Shiv Sena’s annual Dussehra rally on October 19, confirmed Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut. Ahead of Maharashtra Assembly and Lok Sabha elections next year, Thackeray’s visit to Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya and Varanasi will be part of the election campaign.

Maharaj on Wednesday visited Shiv Sena Bhavan and met Uddhav Thackeray, inviting him to visit Ayodhya. While interacting with Maharaj, Uddhav slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that they came to power using Ram Mandir issue but failed to build the temple.

Earlier, Shiv Sena released a poster demanding the construction of Ram Temple portraying it as party’s main issue of focus for the upcoming elections. The ‘Chalo Ayodhya’ march will be a part of Thackeray’s visit and the party will kick off its elections campaign.

Shiv Sena has clarified before that it is going to contest the 2019 elections alone and will not ally with BJP. With Thackeray’s visit, Shiv Sena is trying to overtake the BJP’s core issue.

Another important development to note is that Thackeray’s visit comes after the Supreme Court ruled that it won’t review the 1994 judgment that a mosque is not integral to the practice of Islam. It will have an impact on the Ram Janmabhoomi Case which will be heard in the month of October.
