Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Indore’s runner Kartik Joshi has geared-up to run from Indore to Ayodhya to mark the consecration ceremony of much-awaited Ayodhya’s Ram temple.

Apart from Kartik’s family, Urban Minister and MLA Kailash Vijayvargiya and Indore’s Mayor Pushyamitra Bhargava also arrived to encourage him on Friday. 

Vijayvargiya said, “Along with the city, I also promote health and fitness. I am running an anti-drug campaign to show the youth the right direction.”

“You are Indore’s Milkha Singh! Give me a call as soon as you reach Ayodhya,” Vijavargiya instructed the runner Kartik.
