He added: "Projects worth ₹ 30,000 crores have been approved by the state and central government for the development of Ayodhya. The double-engine government is committed to the city's all-around progress."
He was speaking at the 'Prabudhjan Sammelan'.
"The government will not only promote the religious, cultural, and spiritual significance of the place but will also develop basic amenities for the welfare of people. Now, Lord Ram's birthplace will be a global tourist destination depicting New India's New Uttar Pradesh before the world," said the CM.
"Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, a grand temple of Lord Rama is finally being built after a long wait of 500 years. India will also be seen leading the top 20 countries in formulating plans for peace, prosperity, harmony, and public welfare under the leadership of PM Modi," he further said.
Adityanath also distributed keys, cheques, and certificates to beneficiaries of various government schemes at the event. He said the construction of the temple is a result of the strong willpower of Prime Minister Modi.
Speaking about the Smart City Mission, he said: "We must plan our strategy visualising Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, and the country we aspire to live in 2047. We must discharge our duties as responsible citizens and must work for the development as a whole."
