Agartala: Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Thursday that Ram Mandir would be ready by January 1, 2024. The Minister said this while flagging off BJP's 8-day-long "Rath Yatra'' in Tripura.
He also claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would come to power after the upcoming Assembly elections in Tripura with a two-thirds majority.
Weeks before the announcement of Assembly elections in Tripura, the ruling BJP initiated the 'Rath Yatra' across the state.
Shah also urged the people to book their tickets to go to Ayodhya where Ram Mandir would be ready by January 1 next year.
Alleging gross misrule during the CPI-M-led Left Front government in Tripura, the former BJP president said that for every aspect, people had to go to the CPI-M leaders as the entire Left Front government administration was controlled by the Left cadres.
Referring to Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha, Shah said that the Prime Minister has promised HIRA (Highway, I-way, Railway and Airway) to Tripura, but people of the state also got "Manik" (ruby/ gem)
After traversing the 1,000 km route covering all the 60 Assembly constituencies in the state, the eight-day long Yatra would culminate in Agartala on January 12, when a mega public rally would be held which would be addressed by BJP's national President J.P. Nadda.
Tripura BJP President Rajib Bhattacharjee said that the Rath Yatra titled 'Jana Vishwas Yatra' is part of the party's mission to connect with around 10 lakh people across the state.
