Ranchi: With nearly 40 religious
structures here reportedly getting notice for alleged
encroaching, BJP on Friday said it would strongly oppose any move
to demolish any structure by the district administration.
"Several priests have received notice from the
district administration that their temples would be
demolished. The BJP warns against any move to demolish temples
will be met with stiff resistance," BJP’s state unit spokesman
Sanjay Seth told a news conference here.
"The district administration should recall past
experiences when it faced strong opposition from the people
whenever it had decided to carry out demolition of temples,"
Ranchi district administration had reportedly sent
notices to the 39 temples asking them to explain on August 28
why the structures would not be demolished for being built on
