New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Wednesday, seeking a direction to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to initiate the process of denotifying the forest land where Sant Ravidas temple stood.
The temple in South Delhi's Tughlaqabad area was demolished on August 10 by the DDA on the direction of the Supreme Court.
In his letter to the Union housing and urban affairs minister, Kejriwal also offered to rebuild the temple on the same site once the land is denotified and made available to the temple society.
Kejriwal assured Puri that the AAP government will act in a time-bound manner on the proposal to denotify the land.
According to the Delhi government, Delhi Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam has already written to the DDA vice-chairman, this is for the DDA to initiate the proposal for denotification of the land on which the Sant Ravidas Temple existed.
