New Delhi: AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj on Thursday said he will make a formal request to the Ram Janmabhoomi Trust to build a grand statue of Lord Hanuman at Ayodhya.

The comments come days after Bhardwaj announced that 'Sundar Kand' prayers will be recited on Tuesdays in different parts of his constituency in Greater Kailash to seek the blessings of Lord Hanuman.

Bhardwaj said he will request the 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 said.

Bhardwaj said a recitation of 'Sunder Kand', a chapter in Ramcharitmanas written by poet Tulsidas that talks about Hanuman's visit to Lanka, will be held on the first Tuesday of every month in many areas of his constituency.

The ruling AAP was trolled by the BJP over Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal's frequent visits to the Hanuman Temple during his election campaign.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had said, "Now Arvind Kejriwal has started reciting the 'Hanuman Chalisa'. In coming days, you will see Owaisi reciting the same. This will certainly happen".

Kejriwal had also recited the 'Hanuman Chalisa' during a TV programme earlier this month.

Delhi BJP unit president Manoj Tiwari had called Kejriwal a "nakli bhakt" (fake worshipper).
