The Chief Minister explained that development works in Ayodhya will be sped up once a strong board is constituted. He also called Ayodhya the capital of ‘Suryavansh’ which will soon be turned into a solar city.

Highlighting the development works undertaken by the BJP-ruled government in the state, CM Yogi Adityanath said, “Earlier, we formed a municipal corporation in Ayodhya so that it could be developed as a smart and safe city. Then the name of the district and commissionerate was changed. Now the international airport is being built. You will now be able to travel anywhere in the nation or the entire world from Ayodhya. After this election, the work of the survey will start."

CM Yogi Adityanath also announced that waterways will be started from Ayodhya and large ships will start coming to Kashi soon. He claimed that starting the waterways result in tourism and other opportunities to grow in the city.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister also urged voters to choose wisely during the election with a cautionary message, he said, “If a Ram devotee from Ayodhya wins the municipal elections, it will leave a positive impression; however, if those who fired shots at Ram devotees win, it will send a very negative message,"
