Lucknow: After a break of several months, the popular traditional Ram Leela at Ayodhya made a comeback, after the intervention of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The event that had been discontinued owing to lack of budget and disinterest by previous state government, was again rolled out on Wednesday evening, on the premises of the Ayodhya Research Institute.

The Ram Leela will be enacted by the Avadh Aadarsh Ramleela Mandal of Mahant Jayram Das between May 3 and May 17, while from May 18 to June 1, Dr Harihar's Balaji Ram Leela Mandli will stage its shows.
