What Sunil said

In his Instagram Stories, Sunil shared a picture from the iconic Baahubali scene where Kattappa kills Baahubali. BJP was written on Baahubali while Kattappa had Ayodhya written on him. He then shared a note in Hindi which roughly translates to, “We are forgetting that these are the same Ayodhya citizens who doubted Goddess Sita after she returned from exile. What do you call that person who even denies God? Selfish. History is witness that the citizens of Ayodhya have always betrayed their king. Shame on them.”

In the last of his Instagram stories, his statement read, “We salute your greatness dear citizens of Ayodhya, you are the ones who didn’t spare even Goddess Sita. We are not shocked that you betrayed the man who made sure that Lord Ram came out of that small tent and was installed in a beautiful temple. The entire nation will never see you with respect again.”

More details

The construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya did not yield electoral dividends for the BJP locally as the party lost the Faizabad constituency that houses the temple town. Prasad bagged 554,289 votes as against Singh’s 499,722 and won the seat by a margin of 54,567.

Sunil had attended the consecration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, along with Arun Govil and Dipika Chikhlia, who played the roles of Lord Ram and Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s TV show Ramayana.
