Ayodhya priest offers residence at 10th century temple to Rahul | India News

AYODHYA: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi received support from one of the priests of Ayodhya’s Hanumangarhi temple, one of the most revered temples in the holy town, who offered him residence on the premises of the 10th-century temple.
Mahant Sanjay Das of Hanumangarhi temple, who is the heir to the temple’s head priest Mahant Gyan Das, said that the seers welcome Rahul Gandhi to the holy city and offer him a place of residence as the leader recently lost his accommodation following his disqualification from the Lok Sabha.
“Rahul Gandhi must come to Ayodhya and visit Hanumangarhi and offer prayers here. There are many such ashrams on the campus of Hanumangarhi temple. He should come and stay in our ashram, we will be happy,” Sanjay Das said.
Rahul had also visited the temple in 2016 when Mahant Gyan Das had blessed him.
During Rahul Gandhi’s three-day Uttar Pradesh leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Loni in Ghaziabad earlier this year, the former MP had received blessings from Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya. In a letter addressed to Gandhi, the priest had wished him success in his endeavour and said such an act being done for the greater good of the country, in fact, stood for “sarvajan hitaya, sarvajan sukhaya (welfare and happiness of all)”.
