Ramesh Jaiswal, president of Vyapar Adhikar Manch, said a large number of shops and other commercial establishments would be demolished if the master plan was implemented in its present form.

He further said the traders had registered their protest with vice chairman, ADA, Vishal Singh.

The development authority has asked traders to submit their objections in writing so that they could be discussed and addressed.

In the proposed development plan, two stretches of the road in Ayodhya Dham (old Ayodhya town), including the one leading to the Hanuman Garhi temple, are to be widened.

Another major expansion of the road is proposed from Naya Ghat to Udaya crossing. This stretch is around 4.6 km. The entire road is proposed to be 24 feet and 12 feet on both sides of the divider.

A large number of commercial establishments fall on this stretch of the road. Traders are demanding to curtail the proposed expansion to 20 feet from 24 feet.

A massive beautification and renovation plan has been drafted for Ayodhya which will make it ‘the most beautiful city in the world’, according to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
