Following the demand of the Gorakhnath Math, led by its head BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, the Centre is releasing a stamp on his predecessor and leader of Ram Janmabhoomi movement Mahant Avaidyanath. Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will release the Rs 5 stamp in Gorakhpur on Thursday, to mark Avaidyanath’s first death anniversary as per the Hindu calendar.
“Mahant Avaidyanath was my guru. A stamp in his memory is an acknowledgement of his contribution to the country and society. I am grateful to the PM and the information technology minister for the move,” Adityanath told The Indian Express. He said he had sent a proposal in this regard to the Centre.
