The Bulldozer Controversy: Temples Being Demolished In A Fight For Dominance

A major political disturbance has erupted in Rajasthan, where it has now been revealed that temples, shops, and homes were demolished with bulldozers on Sunday in the city of Alwar. After bulldozing three temples in Alwar to remove encroachments, the opposition BJP is accusing the Congress government of demolishing the temples in the name of development.

Bulldozers demolished these temples and homes on Sunday, allegedly on orders from the BJP-led urban authority, but the political party has issued a statement accusing the Congress of shifting blame. According to the BJP, the Congress government has displayed huge double standards, despite the fact that the same party recently protested demolitions in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, and Delhi. Locals claim that an ancient part of Alwar’s Rajgarh town, located in Sarai Mohalla, which is believed to be 300 years old, was recently demolished in an anti-encroachment drive to make way for a broader road in the town's centre.


Along with this temple, 86 shops, houses, and a newly constructed temple were also removed. The demolitions have sparked a major political spat, with both political parties swapping charges. According to the Rajasthan Congress administration, the demolition was ordered by the competing political party, the BJP, because Rajgarh town has a municipal council dominated entirely by the BJP, making it an autonomous body that calls the shots on town planning issues. In response to the acquisitions, the BJP said that the district administration helped in the demolition drive and that the state government could not easily wash its hands of the whole thing. The temple conflict is expected to heat up, as the Congress plans to issue a notice to the municipal council and the BJP plans to send a fact-finding mission to Rajgarh, a town in Rajasthan.


In Uttar Pradesh, a similar bulldozer dispute has erupted. The railway authorities issued an anti-encroachment notice to a temple in the city, sparking resentment among residents.
