Insight Online News

New Delhi, Dec 3 : Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will flag-off the first train to Ayodhya under the Delhi government’s pilgrimage scheme on Friday at 7 pm.

The train will carry 1,000 senior citizens to the holy town where they will visit the Ram Mandir and other spots of religious importance.

“Today at 7 pm, the first train will leave for Ayodhya so that senior citizens can have a darshan of Lord Ram. I will go to the station. My resolve to ensure that more people get a darshan of Lord Ram has strengthened since I returned from Ayodhya,” Kejriwal tweeted.

This is part of the ‘Mukhya Mantri Teerath Yatra Yojna’ launched by the Delhi government under its flagship scheme for over a dozen sites of religious importance whose complete expenditure will be borne by the state government.

The Delhi Cabinet in November approved Ayodhya to the list of religious sites where it is providing free pilgrimage to the senior citizens from the national capital.

Under the scheme, a senior citizen is allowed to bring an attendant aged 21 and above. The government will also bear the expenses of the attendant who will accompany the senior citizen.
