Discontinued several years back, Ayodhya's traditional Ram Leela restarts due to Yogi Adityanath's initiative

Lucknow: UP CM  Yogi Adityanath is known for taking initiatives. He has taken several initiatives after he took charge as UP CM.

Now, following orders from Yogi Adityanath to restart the traditional Ram Leela at Ayodhya, the event was rolled out on Wednesday evening, an official spokesman said.

The Ram Leela will be staged on the premises of the Ayodhya Research Institute.

It had been discontinued several years back owing to lack of budget and disinterest by successive state governments.

The spokesman informed that the Avadh Aadarsh Ramleela Mandal of Mahant Jayram Das will perform between May 3 and May 17, while from May 18 to June 1, Balaji Ram Leela Mandli of Dr Harihar will stage its shows.
