He said he will find a suitable time and will urge the Ram Mandir Trust to build a beautiful and grand Hanuman statue in Ayodhya. “I will seek time from the trust and give a formal request for that too,” Bhardwaj told PTI.

“Hanuman ji is very dear to Lord Ram. It is seen wherever you have a Ram temple, there is Hanuman because every Ram temple always consists of a Ram Darbar which includes Ram, Lakshman, Sita and Hanuman,” he added.

On Wednesday, Bhardwaj had said recitation of ‘Sunder Kand’ will be held Tuesday of every month in many areas of his constituency.

The development comes after AAP chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal visited hanuman Temple in Delhi after scoring a landslide victory in the national capital. Kejriwal had also recited the ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ during a TV programme earlier this month.
