The Puja Pandal at Thyagraj Stadium was a replica of the Ram temple which is being built in Ayodhya. Earlier, CM Kejriwal also announced that Ayodhya would be included in the Delhi government’s Chief Minister’s pilgrimage plan for the elderly.
The Dilli ki Diwali program was launched in 2019 when the Aam Aadmi party government hosted a large cultural event in Central Park in Connaught Place.
Last year Kejriwal performed the puja at Akshardham temple. Kejriwal had recently visited Ayodhya, Lord Ram’s birthplace, and offered prayers there. He also participated in an “aarti” on the bank of the Saryu River.
The AAP is fighting assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, which are scheduled for early next year.
