Ayodhya Ram Temple: Mayawati demands Supreme Court probe in alleged land scam


Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Thursday sought Supreme Court’s intervention in the alleged land scam in Ayodhya.

“This is a serious matter. A high-level probe should be conducted in this matter. It would be best if the Supreme Court intervenes in this matter. The Central government should direct the state government to take this issue seriously,” said Mayawati.

A report in The Indian Express stated that the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, which was set up in February 2020, has so far acquired nearly 70 acres land in Ayodhya. On the other hand, private buyers are also rushing in anticipating hefty gains as the project gathers momentum, it added.

An investigation by the national daily found that the buyers include “local MLAs, close relatives of bureaucrats who have or are serving in Ayodhya, and local revenue officials whose job is to authenticate land transactions.”

In as many as 14 cases, records show families of these officials bought land after the apex court verdict, all within a 5-km radius of the Ram Temple site.
