Will of Lord Ram: Akhilesh Yadav jabs BJP in Lok Sabha over Faizabad defeat

New Delhi/IBNS: Jabbing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over its Lok Sabha poll defeat in Uttar Pradesh's Faizabad, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday called the INDIA alliance's victory "the will of Lord Ram".

"The victory of Ayodhya is the democratic victory of the mature voters' understanding," said Akhilesh, and added, "It is the will of Lord Ram".

The result of the Faizabad Lok Sabha seat has assumed significance as the constituency locates Ayodhya's Ram Temple, which has remained the poll promise of the BJP.

The Ram Temple was inaugurated through a grand ceremony by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January.

Not just Akhilesh, Leader of Opposition and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi also took a dig at the BJP on its Faizabad defeat on Monday.

"Narendra Modi conducted a survey twice to contest elections from Ayodhya. Those who conducted the survey clearly said – do not contest elections from Ayodhya, the people of Ayodhya will defeat you.

"That's why Narendra Modi went to Varanasi and escaped from there," the LoP said.

In Faizabad, INDIA alliance candidate from Samajwadi Party, Awadhesh Prasad, defeated BJP's Lallu Singh by more than 4 percent votes in the Lok Sabha polls, which saw BJP getting its tally down from 303 to 240, that is 32 short of the majority mark.
