The district administration was also blamed for the defeat

Mahant Raju Das said in the meeting that only party workers should not be held responsible for the defeat of BJP in Faizabad and the district administration is also guilty for this. Let us tell you that SP candidate Awadhesh Prasad has defeated former BJP MP Lallu Singh on the Faizabad seat.

Mahant Raju Das said that the district administration issued notices to the people of Ayodhya and asked them to vacate their properties for development work. This happened just before the elections and due to this there was resentment among the people against the BJP.

Mahant Raju Das told The Indian Express that he had an argument with the District Magistrate around 11 pm on Friday. During this time the SSP was also present with the DM. He said that when he came out of the meeting, he came to know that the police gunmen deployed for his security had been removed.

Mahant Raju Das said that saints are being insulted in the government of saints.

All three gunners were removed

DM Nitish Kumar told The Indian Express that when the administration came to know that three criminal cases were registered against Mahant Raju Das in 2013, 2017 and 2023, the process of withdrawing the three policemen given to him was started. The DM said that two gunmen given to the Mahant had already been withdrawn and now the third gunner has also been withdrawn.

DM says that Mahant Raju Das was given this gunner because he had requested that his life was in danger. But we were constantly receiving complaints that Raju Das was using the security given to him to threaten people and Raju Das used foul language against the administration and the people of Ayodhya.
