This was the reason for the opposition of Devasthanam BoardActually former CM Trivendra Singh Rawat has been removed this week. He was constantly in dispute regarding some of his decisions. He neither got the support of the MLAs nor the public on these issues. The biggest decision among them was to take 55 temples of Garhwal region, including Chardham, under government control. Despite all the opposition, the Trivandra government formed the Devasthanam Board. On which BJP leader Subramanian Swamy dragged the government to court as well. The priests associated with the temples say that the Devasthanam board is a conspiracy to take away their rights. In the next year’s assembly elections, there was a possibility of watering the BJP’s plans with this issue. The CM says that he will talk with the Tirtha Purohit Samaj in it and some middle path will be found.
