JAIPUR: Buckling under the pressure of RSS-backed Mandir Bachao Sangharsh Samiti, the state government on Tuesday agreed to rebuild 13 temples, including the ancient Rojgareshwar Mahadev Temple, at their original locations.
The Mandir Bachaho Sangrash Samiti, had held a two-hour chakka jam on July 9 to protest the shifting of temples in Jaipur, particularly the ancient temples in Walled City, which were demolished to pave way for the Jaipur Metro. However, upset over the demolition of the temples and their improper shifting elsewhere, the RSS, VHP and other organisations had supported the Samiti’s agitation and demand of rebuilding the temples at original locations. The samiti members were holding talks with cabinet minister Arun Chaturvedi and state party president Ashok Parnami since their protest earlier this month.(hindu-2015).
