Ayodhya Devotees

Before the election results were announced, the Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir in Ayodhya attracted an average of 100,000 to 150,000 pilgrims daily. However, following the BJP’s humiliating defeat in Ayodhya, there has been a huge decline in the number of devotees visiting the temple.

BJP supporters, angered by the outcome of the 18th Lok Sabha elections, have expressed their frustration towards the residents of Ayodhya.

Despite the BJP’s contributions to the region, including the construction of a grand Ram temple, an airport, and the development of Ayodhya into a modern tourist destination, the local populace chose not to elect the BJP as their parliamentary representative.

Accusations of being ungrateful have been rampant among BJP supporters, who feel betrayed by the people of Ayodhya. They argue that the rejection is undeserved given the BJP’s investments in the city.

Some extreme voices have gone as far as cursing the residents, particularly targeting Ayodhyawasi Hindus, accusing them of failing in their duty and labeling them as traitors.

A concerning trend has emerged in the aftermath of the election results. The number of visitors to Ayodhya has dropped significantly, impacting local livelihoods. E-rickshaw drivers, for instance, have seen their daily earnings reduce from Rs 700-800 to around Rs 250.

Additionally, BJP supporters have taken to social media, advocating for a financial boycott of Ayodhya. They are urging potential visitors to the Ram Mandir not to purchase anything from local vendors as a form of protest against the election results.

These actions and sentiments have collectively led to a drastic reduction in the pilgrimage traffic to Ayodhya, deeply affecting the city’s economy and spirit.
