Rahul Gandhi Becomes First Gandhi Since 1992 To Set Foot In Ayodhya

Published on 9 September, 2016 at 2:56 pm By

It took the Gandhi family 24 years but such is the pull of votes and vote banks that it brought Rahul Gandhi to Ayodhya making him the first in his family to visit the city since the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992.

Rahul, who is on his ‘Kisan Mahayatra’ across Uttar Pradesh, met Mahant Gyan Das, the Hindu religious leader who is known as an anti-Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) figure.

The Mahant told reporters that Rahul came “like any other devotee” and that there was no discussion on the Ram Temple issue.

The Congress vice-president also offered prayers at the Hanuman Garhi Temple before heading to the Circuit House for the start of the yatra.

Reports say that Rahul will be visiting the Kichaucha Dargah Sharif at Ambedkarnagar in the evening before meeting farmers in Faizabad at Ramlila grounds in Poorabazaar and Dalits at the Dalit Colony.

But he appears to have learnt a lesson from the ‘Khat Sabha’ that ended on a chaotic note and embarrassment for the Congress.

In 1990 Rahul’s father Rajiv Gandhi was scheduled to visit Ayodhya during his ‘Sadbhavna Yatra’ but had to cancel the plan because it was getting dark.
