Even as governing party legislator Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh opposed the Maharashtra leader’s travel, BJP MP Lallu Singh stated Tuesday that he will welcome and be ready to host MNS chairman Raj Thackeray during his projected Ayodhya visit next month.
The MNS chief has stated that he and his supporters will travel to Ayodhya on June 5 to offer prayers at Ram Janmabhoomi.
Lallu Singh, the MP from Faizabad, which includes Ayodhya city, said in a statement on Tuesday that anyone who wishes to visit Lord Rama’s refuge is always welcome.
“As we are the servants of the devotees of Lord Rama, we will welcome him. We will also pray to Lord Rama to give Raj Thackeray good wisdom so that he works under Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the betterment of himself and Maharashtra,” he said.
This follows BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh’s statement that Thackeray will not be permitted to cross Ayodhya‘s borders unless he apologises to all north Indians with folded hands for “humiliating” them.
On Tuesday, he held a roadshow with a huge number of his supporters and declared that Thackeray would not be allowed to enter Ayodhya.
He has, however, stated that his decision was “personal” and had nothing to do with the BJP.
