The Uttar Pradesh Assembly will host the Commonwealth Legislature Committee conference from January 16.
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla will inaugurate the four-day conference while Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh will be the chief guest. UP Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will also participate in the conference.
The main attraction of the conference will be the visit of around 120 delegates, including 20 from foreign countries, to Ayodhya on January 18 where they will have darshan of Ram Lalla.
This will be the first foreign delegation which will visit Ayodhya after the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit on November 9 last year.
Official sources here said on Sunday that UP Assembly Speaker Hriday Narayan Dikshit would lead the delegation to Ayodhya where along with Ram Janmabhoomi, the delegates will also have darshan of other temples of the city.
Speakers of almost all the state assemblies of India besides members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will participate in the conference, which will conclude on January 19.
Principal Secretary, UP Assembly, Pradeep Kumar Dubey said that arrangement had been made for smooth conduct of the conference, being held for the first time in the state.
The conference is being organised by Lok Sabha secretariat.
