BJP and right-wing leaders are often talking on Mathura and Vrindavan projects, now Mr. Yogi Adityanath has officially declared that his next projects are Mathura and Vrindavan.
Addressing a public meeting at Amroha in Western UP, the Chief Minister has said that BJP had honoured its commitment to Ram Temple in Ayodhya, He also announced that his government will take up Mathura and Vrindavan temple project very soon.
We had promised to construct Ram Temple at Ayodhya, Prime Minister Modiji has started the work and the grand abode of Lord Shiva is also coming up in Kashi. Then how can Mathura and Vrindavan be left behind, he asked the cheering crowd.
Mathura, the western UP town believed to be the birthplace of Hindu god Krishna, has a prominent mosque, the Shahi Eidgah, located next to the Krishna Janmabhoomi (the site believed to be Krishna’s birthplace). The mosque has been at the centre of a legal battle with Hindu groups claiming that the Eidgah was built on land where Lord Krishna was born.
Earlier, on December 2, deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya had stirred up a fresh row in the poll-bound state as he said that preparations were underway for the construction of a grand temple in Mathura on the lines of Ayodhya and Varanasi.
