Ayodhya, March 7 (IANS) On completion of 100 days of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday arrived in the holy city for a ‘darshan’ of Ramlala, the presiding deity of the Ayodhya temple.

Thackeray is accompanied by his wife, who is also the editor of Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana, Rashmi Thackeray, and their son, Aaditya Thackeray, a minister in the Maharashtra government.

Many seers and Hindu Mahasabha’s district chief Rakeshdhar Mishra opposing Thackeray have been detained with police personnel having been posted outside their residences. Hindu Maha Sabha mahant Parashuram Das has also been detained, police sources said.

Among the other detainees are seer of Tapaswi Cantt, Sant Paramhans, and Hanumangarhi ‘mahant’ Raju Das. All these religious heads had announced their opposition to Thackera’s trip and decided to show black flags to the visiting Chief Minister.

Thackeray will pay obeisance at the temple and take a ‘darshan’ of Hanumangarhi. But he is not scheduled to conduct ‘Saryu aarti’ nor take part in a public gathering.

Thackeray reached Lucknow’s Amausi airport by a special flight around 1.15 p.m and drove to Ayodhya.

Sources said 40 MLAs and Sena MPs would also pray at Ramlala.

It is Thackeray’s first visit to Ayodhya after becoming the Maharashtra Chief Minister, although he has thrice visited the holy city.

Jammu and Kashmir Shopian Indian Army

An Indian Army convoy in Jammu & Kashmir’s Baramulla district came under heavy attack after militants fired indiscriminately, injuring a soldier, the force said on Thursday.

The soldier injured in Wednesday’s attack was rushed to Base Hospital in Srinagar. He is out of danger and is recuperating.

The convoy of three Army vehicles, comprising 30 personnel, was moving from Baramulla to Gulmarg and when it reached Pattan area, terrorists hiding in a built-up area attacked the convoy and started indiscriminate firing.

“The firing started at 2:15 pm. As the first vehicle crossed, the militants attacked the second convoy vehicle. A soldier inside the vehicle received a bullet injury,” said a senior Army officer.

As it was a built-up area and people were on the streets, Naib Subedar Joginder Singh who was leading the convoy decided not to resort to firing and decided to first disengage from the line of fire.

“Our men ensured that no collateral damage happened despite them being attacked in the built-up area,” said the officer, adding that the other vehicles managed to move ahead.

The officer said that the training which all ranks undergo while being posted in Jammu & Kashmir ensures that the force’s first priority is to save civilian lives.

Later, the area was cordoned off for searches.
