Lucknow, Dec 13: Senior Congress leader Dr. Karan Singh on Thursday appealed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to make a statue of Goddess Sita in addition to the planned Lord Ram statue in Ayodhya.
In this regard, Karan Singh wrote a letter to UP CM saying “If you have taken the decision to construct a magnificent idol of Lord Rama, then it is better to reduce the height of Rama statue to half and build a couple statue of both Rama and Sita instead.”

The development comes days after Adityanath proposed the idea of constructing a huge Lord Rama’s statue in Ayodhya.
The Congress leader justified his point stating the goddess deserved a respected place in Ayodhya as all her life even after being married to a Rama she did not get the deserved place in Ayodhya.
“After her marriage, Sita came to Ayodhya but soon after had to go on 14-year exile and there she was kidnapped by Ravana, and even after being saved by Rama, she had to undergo the ‘agni pariksha’ and then she again had to go to exile to an ashram,” wrote Singh.
