During his speech at Ayodhya after the bhoomi pujan for a new Ram temple, Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as “Aditya Yoginath”, and on social media people reacted with memes.

At the start of his speech while introducing those on the stage with him, Modi said: “Uttar Pradesh ke urjawan, yashaswi, lokpriya mukhya mantri sriman Aditya Yoginathji (Uttar Pradesh’s dynamic, successful and popular chief minister Aditya Yoginathji)”.

Watch the moment here:

Many on social media thought the slip was ironic given the Uttar Pradesh chief minister has been credited with changing many towns and cities in the state. Here’s how people reacted:

Sharing the dais with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Trust chief Nritya Gopaldas Maharaj, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the prime minister said the proposed Ram temple would become a modern symbol of India’s traditions.

Modi made a quick visit to Hanumangarhi temple before attending the ground-breaking ceremony for the ‘Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir’, where he offered prayers and he was gifted a silver crown, a stole embossed with the name of Lord Ram, and headgear.
