Amid the political slugfest over the Puri heritage corridor project, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Saturday said, “Let the temple be beautified within the confines of the law.”
He said no one has any objection to the beautification of the temple.
“No one has any objection to the beautification of the temple. But, the recent reports related to Srimadir Parikrama project is concerning,” tweeted Pradhan.
Notably, the construction of the Puri Heritage Corridor has snowballed into a major political controversy after the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) informed the Orissa High Court that the construction activities are going on without any valid permission from the authority.
It said the construction activities might be endangering the temple’s structural safety.
