Also, Thackeray is slated to take part in 'Maha-Aarti on the banks of Sarayu river in the evening today and would also participate in the VHP event scheduled on Sunday.
Thackeray visit to Ayodhya is a move to built political pressure on the ruling Bhartiya Janta Party in centre and state and its ally to expedite the construction plans for the proposed Ram Temple there as a run-up to the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
