Ahead of his visit to Ayodhya tomorrow, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister here today, officials said.

It was a "courtesy meeting" that lasted about 15-20 minutes and went off well, a senior state official told PTI.

"As far as the Ayodhya issue is concerned, Adityanath's stand is very clear. The state is not a party. We welcome any settlement and will honour the decision of the court," he said.

Shankar had said in earlier this week that he was involved as a mediator in the Ram Temple dispute of his own will and would visit Ayodhya on November 16 to meet all stakeholders.

He said he did not have an agenda and would listen to everybody.

Yesterday, Adityanath started the campaign for urban local bodies polls from Ayodhya.

He said "Ayodhya" means a place where there is no possibility of a "yudh" (fight).

"I am starting the campaign in Ayodhya with the aim that the in all the local bodies are in favour of the BJP, so that development that was obstructed during the SP and BSP governments can be carried out in the state.
