Sunil Lahri Slams Ayodhya People For ‘Betraying’ BJP In Lok Sabha Elections

Sunil Lahri expressed disappointment with the Ayodhya election results, criticizing its residents as "selfish."

Sunil Lahri, renowned for his portrayal of Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, recently voiced his disappointment with the citizens of Ayodhya for not voting for the BJP. Under BJP leadership, the Ram temple in Ayodhya was inaugurated in January.

On June 4, the highly anticipated results of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections were announced, and in Faizabad, the constituency in Uttar Pradesh where the temple is located, BJP’s Lallu Singh lost the election. The seat was claimed by Samajwadi Party candidate Awadhesh Prasad.

On Wednesday, Sunil took to social media to express his disappointment, sharing several posts on Instagram. In one of his posts, he wrote, “We are forgetting that these are the same Ayodhya citizens who doubted Goddess Sita after she returned from exile. What do you call the person who even denies God? Selfish. History stands proof that the citizens of Ayodhya always betrayed their king. Shame on them.”

In yet another post he wrote, “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.”

Meanwhile, Sunil Lahri’s co-star, Arun Govil, who portrayed Ram in the popular television series, won a seat in Meerut. Sunil congratulated Arun on his victory. In a video, Lahri said, “I am happy that two people, I really like, have won the elections. First, Kangana Ranaut. She is the epitome of women empowerment and has won from Mandi (Himachal Pradesh). Second, my elder brother, Arun Govil, who won it from Meerut. Congratulations and best wishes to both of them.”
