Big statement of former Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat
There has been a new twist in the case of the Devasthanam Board formed to manage the major temples, including the Char Dhams, which have the status of famous religious tourist places and pilgrimages of Uttarakhand. Giving a big statement, former Chief Minister of the state Trivendra Singh Rawat has said that in the midst of the discussions to withdraw the Devasthanam Act, it is important that the demand to withdraw this Act is not of the public, but of some people. The former CM also said that if this act is withdrawn, then a message will be sent across the country and similar demands will start arising from other religious places as well.
The matter is that a unit of priests has been protesting for the last few days regarding the Devasthanam Board, demanding that the Uttarakhand government should dissolve this board. In this connection, recently the President of All India Teerth Purohit Mahasabha reiterated the demand by writing a letter to the Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami. In this matter, the former CM Rawat is in the center because the decision to form the Devasthanam Board was taken during his tenure. Now Rawat has made his stand clear on this.
