New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Ayodhya on May 1, BJP leaders said on Thursday.

The party said the rally will take place in Maya Bazaar, an area just outside Ayodhya town and 25 km from the site of the temple-mosque dispute.

This is the first time PM Modi will visit the area since he took power in 2014.

The holy town has been central to the BJP and its Hindutva affiliates’ agitation for a Ram temple at what the faithful believe to be the birthplace of Lord Ram.

The BJP leaders said the rally will be part of Modi’s campaign for the Lok Sabha election.

Ayodhya falls under Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to polls in the fifth phase on May 6.
