Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday announced that his government, which is in alliance with the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party, will shell out Rs 1 crore to help in the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The Maharashtra Chief Minister showed up in the temple town today for the first time after becoming Chief Minister in December last year.
"I have parted ways with the BJP, not with Hindutva. The BJP is not Hindutva. Hindutva is a different thing and I have not parted ways with it," he told in Ayodhya, where he was slated to perform an aarti, but cancelled it due to concerns over the coronavirus.
