Addressing a gathering in Uttar Pradesh capital lucknow on wednesday, the ncp veteran demanded that the Centre must form a trust for building a mosque in ayodhya similar to the trust to oversee the construction of ram temple.
"You can form a trust for a temple then why can’t you set up a trust for the mosque. The country belongs to everyone,’’ the ncp chief said. Pawar’s statement came hours after the members of the Shri ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, which was announced by PM narendra modi recently, met for the first time in delhi to work out modalities of temple construction in Ayodhya.
Hours after the first meeting of the Shri ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust in delhi, the Digambar Akhara objected to the exclusion of yogi adityanath from the trust. yogi adityanath, apart from being the Uttar Pradesh chief minister, is also the head of the Goraksh Peeth in Gorakhpur and previous heads of this Peeth - Mahant Digvijaynath and Mahant Avaidyanath - have played crucial roles in the ayodhya movement.
