However, there are many who now feel positively about it as Adityanath has mainly focused on developmental issues since his appointment. He is even riding high on public popularity charts. Crimes have reduced along with the number of criminals.

Right now , Ayodhya’s development and beautification has been a prime focus of the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh. Building a 100 metre statue of Lord Ram on the banks of Saryu river in Ayodhya on the land of around 500 acres, was also another decision taken by the Government in the year 2017.
Notably, during Diwali in 2017, the BJP government had gifted projects worth Rs 133 crore to Ayodhya as Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath celebrated a mega “Deepotsav” in the holy town. As many as 1.73 lakh earthen lamps were lit on the banks of Saryu river during the “Deepotsav”.The tourism department of the state had presented a proposal in this regard to Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik in the month of October 2017. It is a part of the state government’s plan to promote religious tourism in the state.
Here are some of the projects taken up by the state government under CM Yogi governance:
“Ram Katha Gallery”, “Queen Ho memorial” for which Rs 7.23 crore was earmarked. A new bus station would also be built at a cost of Rs 7.04 crore and Rs 15.65 crore was sanctioned for construction of a parking lot at the old bus station.
A multi-purpose hall at the “Digambar Akhada” was also announced at a cost of Rs 2.75 crore, a shelter for pilgrims at “Panchkosi Parikrama” route at a cost of Rs 1.88 crore and Rs 23.37 crore for construction of a toilet and parking at the “Pateshwaru temple” premises, and a tourist information centre at the railway station is also slated to be built at a cost of Rs 5.38 lakh.
CM Yogi laid the foundation stone for beautification works at “Ram ki Paidi” (Rs 12.04 crore), development of the “Laxman Kila Ghat” (Rs 9.73 crore), development and parking construction at “Guptar Ghat”, street rejuvenation and pedestrian streets. He also announced that “There would be no dearth of funds for development of Ayodhya and the state government had big plans to develop the temple town as a major tourist draw”.
