Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is expected to meet Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday evening, reports said.

The spiritual guru, who is involved as a mediator in the Ram temple dispute, will also visit Ayodhya on Thursday to meet all the stakeholders.

On Tuesday, the spiritual leader told reporters that he would pay a courtesy visit to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister. “It was out of my own will that I was involved as a mediator in Ram Temple issue,” the spiritual guru said.

Shankar confirmed that he would be visiting Ayodhya and said, “I do not have an agenda in this issue and will listen to everybody during the visit.”

According to reports, the Uttar Pradesh chief minister is also making all possible efforts to end the ongoing dispute.

Earlier, the Congress had dubbed Sri Sri as a “government agent”. Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan had said the Supreme Court made it very clear that a settlement was possible, but he asked as to who had appointed people like the Art of Living Foundation chief to take charge.
