Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that Lord Ram is the faith of India and no work is possible without paying obeisance to him and seeking his blessings.
Before leaving for Ayodhya to kick-off BJP’s poll campaign for local body polls, the Chief Minister took a dig at the Opposition parties for condemninghis move to choose Ayodhya for launching BJP poll campaign.
