Davanagere, Sep 19: Former chief minister Yediyurappa on Sunday September 19 said that the state government will approach the Supreme Court (SC) with regard to the matter related to the demolition of a temple in Mysuru.
Speaking at a BJP executive meeting in the city, Yediyurappa said, "There is a lot of confusion with regard to the temple demolition matter. It seems that the order of the Supreme Court is not right in this matter.
"The public is also against the SC in this matter. In the wake of this opposition, we will approach the SC for reconsideration of the verdict," he said.
Speaking on the occasion, chief minister Basavaraj Bommai said that the deputy commissioners and other officials should not take any hasty decision with regard to demolition of temples.
A temple in a remote part of Mysuru district was demolished a few days ago, as part of an anti-encroachment drive in line with a 10-year-old Supreme Court order. The issue has created a political storm, with right-wing groups criticising the BJP-ruled government and accusing it of backstabbing the Hindus, and the Congress claiming that Hindu sentiments were hurt by the move.
