Rahul Gandhi, Congress vice-president will be visiting Ayodhya on Friday as part of his ‘Kisan Mahayatra’ ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections.
Interestingly, he will be the first in the Gandhi-Nehru clan who is visiting the city since the demolition of the Babri Masjid 24 years ago.
Reportedly, he will be offering his prayers at the famous Hanuman Garhi temple. However, it is still not confirmed whether he will be visiting the Ram temple at the Ramjanmbhoomi-Babri Masjid site, which is just about a kilometre away.
