Mayawati Alleges 'Casteist' Centre, AAP Govt Colluded to Demolish Ravidas Temple in Delhi
Alleging that the ruling BJP at the Centre and the AAP government in Delhi colluded to get the Ravidas temple in Delhi’s Tughlaqabad area demolished, BSP supremo Mayawati on Wednesday said that it showed the casteist mentality of the two parties.
The centuries-old temple Guru Ravidas temple was demolished on August 9 by the Delhi Development Authority as part of a drive to carry out Supreme Court orders.
They argued that while the Ramjanmabhoomi issue was being handled with utmost care, this wasn’t the case with the Ravidas temple issue.
The Supreme Court, firm on its stand, on Tuesday said its orders are not influenced by politics around such demonstrations.
