Hyderabad: Bringing an end to speculations on whether Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath would visit the Bhagyalakshmi temple in Charminar or not, Yogi visited the temple at around 7:50 am on Sunday morning.

Heavy security was beefed up ahead of UP CM's visit to Charminar. Charminar was closed to the public on Saturday. It only opened after 5 pm, as Yogi could not visit due to 'important engagements'. Yogi was scheduled to visit the temple on Saturday afternoon and offer prayers.

Charminar Police Station Sub-Inspector Santosh Naidu had said that security was tightened up for the security of the public on Saturday and Sunday. The police were not sure when Yogi would visit the temple.

As per sources from Hyderabad police, Yogi had been advised against visiting the temple in view of the BJP leader Nupur Sharma's controversial remarks against Prophet Muhammed.

The BJP leaders across the country are in the city to attend BJP's National Executive Meeting on 2 and 3 July at Hyderabad International Convention Centre. The two-day meeting is attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP National President JP Nadda, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Chief Ministers of 19 states and other senior BJP leaders.
