New Delhi: The first prasad from the ‘Bhumi Pujan’ of Ram Temple in Ayodhya was given to a Dalit family.

The prasad, which included Laddu, a copy of Ram Charit Manas and a ‘Tulsi mala’ was sent to Mahaveer’s family by UP CM Yogi Adityanth, a senior official said.

It was only after that the distribution of the prasad for others began in Ayodhya.

Mahaveer is the same person whose accommodation under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana was visited by CM Yogi Adityanath where he even shared a meal during the Lok Sabha election campaign.

The Chief Minister had food at his house and interacted with his family.

Reacting to it, Mahaveer said, “I am a Dalit. The CM sent the first prasad to me and my family. I am thankful to him that he remembered me.”

“It’s a double delight for us. Firstly, our dream of a Ram temple has been fulfilled. Secondly, we got the first prasad. We hope that now the caste discrimination in the state will end and everyone will think of development and welfare of all,” he said.
