Ram Raja temple MP

Five people have been booked for allegedly collecting donations for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya through a ‘fake’ local outfit.

One of the five accused, having a criminal record, has been arrested.

A written complaint was filed in this regard by district president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

As part of a nationwide campaign of VHP to collect voluntary donations from people for the construction of the grand Ram temple, teams of VHP and RSS workers have been constituted in Pilibhit.

When one such team reached the Kala Mandir locality under Sungarhi police station to collect the donation, devotees told team members that they had already given money to another local outfit.

The VHP functionary told the police that members of the other outfit had issued ‘fake’ receipts to voluntary donors even though they were not authorized to collect money for Ram temple construction.

Sungarhi SHO, Shrikant Dwiwedi, said that the receipt issued by the local outfit revealed the names of its office bearers. All of them were found to be the residents of Pilibhit city.

The police have now booked them under IPC sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forging a document purporting to be a receipt acknowledging the payment of money), 468 (committing forgery, intending that the document forged shall be used for the purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document).

Adityanath has planned a series of events during the whole year starting February 4.

School children will be made aware of the importance of this event and candles and lamps will be lit up at all the martyred monuments and statues of legendary leaders.

Beautification of the Chauri Chaura Shaheed Smarak Samiti is planned and the chief minister wants to develop it as a heritage tourist spot.

The Chauri-Chaura incident took place on February 4, 1922, at Chauri-Chaura in the Gorakhpur district of the then United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh) in British India, when over 3,000 protesters participating in the non-cooperation movement, clashed with police who opened fire.

In the protest, three agitators were martyred and the enraged mob set the police station on fire which left 20 policemen dead.

Mahatma Gandhi withdrew his non-cooperation movement after the incident and later, 228 agitators were prosecuted by the British government while 172 protesters were sentenced to death by the Gorakhpur Sessions Court.

After this incident, the revolutionaries intensified their movement and shook the confidence of the British Government.
