NEW DELHI: Congress on Monday urged the Supreme Court to take cognisance of the allegations of land scam by the Ram temple trust in Ayodhya, calling it a betrayal of faith. It asked PM Narendra Modi to answer if those behind the irregularities have his protection.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Lord Ram himself is justice, truth, religion. Cheating in his name is a sin.” He used the hashtag “Ram Mandir ghotala”.
AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, “Crores of people made offerings at the feet of God because of their faith and devotion. Misuse of that donation is a sin, an insult to their faith.” Congress’ Randeep Surjewala said the purchase of land at a price which inflated many times shortly after was a “big scam”.
