Ayodhya and Janakpur To Be Declared as “Twin Cities” By Indian and Nepal Govt

Ayodhya and Janakpur are getting a reconnect. The Uttar Pradesh and Nepal governments will soon sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to declare Ayodhya and Janakpur as twin cities, an official said on Monday.

An understanding to this effect arrived at a meeting between a Nepalese delegation and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath late on Sunday.

Adityanath also agreed to visit the Himalayan nation on December 12 to participate in the festivities of Lord Ram and Sita that are held every year.

The Chief Minister said that his trip to Janakpur would be a cultural one in which he will act to strengthen the bond between the two neighbouring nations. Janakpur is the birthplace of Goddess Sita. He also informed the Nepalese delegation that work on the four-landing of the Ram-Janki road has begun.

Earlier, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Nepal and launched the Janakpur-Ayodhya bus service besides pledging Rs 100 crore aid to develop Janakpur city.

The Indian leader described his visit as “that of a pilgrim rather than as a Prime Minister” and participated in the civic reception bestowed upon him by Janakpur Sub-Metropolitan City at the Rangabhumi Maidan. He was felicitated with a garland weighing 121 kg and a key to Janakpur city.

Addressing thousands, Modi said: “Ayodhya is incomplete without Janakidham. Similarly, Nepal is incomplete without India and India is incomplete without Nepal. Our ties are religious, based on deep faith and historical and complement to each other.”
