Ram Janmabhoomi Trust has been accused of huge corruption in buying land for Ram temple. The Samajwadi Party (SP) held a press conference in Ayodhya and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Lucknow, alleging that the trust’s secretary, Champat Rai, sold the same land sometime back for only Rs two crore. There has been a big scam by buying it for Rs 18.5 crore. Champat Rai told the media about this that we do not worry about these allegations. We were also accused of killing Mahatma Gandhi.
Samajwadi Party leader and former minister Pawan Pandey presented the documents of the registry in front of the media in Ayodhya, alleging that a land adjacent to the land of Ram Janmabhoomi, priest Harish Pathak and his wife gave for two crores to Sultan Ansari and Ravi Mohan on the evening of March 18. was sold. Only a few minutes later Champat Rai bought the same land on behalf of Ram Janmabhoomi Trust for Rs 18.5 crore.
Pawan Pandey, who was a minister in the Akhilesh Yadav government, said, ‘I am accusing of corruption. What was such a reason? What gold did that land spew within 10 minutes that the land for which it was sold for two crores, after 10 minutes that land became worth Rs 18.5 crore.
The same allegations were made by Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh at a press conference in Lucknow at the same time. He said that in 5 minutes the land became costlier by Rs 16.5 crore, which is a world record. Sanjay Singh said, ‘Land of worth 2 crores bought for 18.5 crores from Ravi Mohan Tiwari and Sultan Ansari. The price of land increased by about Rs 5.5 lakh per second. Not only in India but any where in the world a land would have become so expensive in a second.
The trust is also accused of scam in this purchase because in the registry of the land which Ravi Mohan and a Muslim man Sultan Ansari bought, the trust’s trustee Anil Mishra and Ayodhya Mayor Rishikesh Upadhyay, who belong to the Sangh, are witnesses in this and few minutes later, the same two are witnesses in the deal of Ram Janmabhoomi Trust, which was bought expensive for Rs 16.5 crore.
Pawan Pandey said, ‘It means that when the bond was done, the trustees were witnesses, when the registered agreement was signed, the trustees were witnesses. It means the trust is indulging in corruption.
On the other hand, Champat Rai, the secretary of Ram Janmabhoomi Trust, does not care about these allegations. He said, ‘We keep on being accused. We have been watching the allegations for 100 years. We were accused of killing Mahatma Gandhi. We don’t worry about the allegation, you don’t worry too. You do your work, we will do ours.
In this case, by presenting official documents, the parties making this allegation want big action against the culprits. Sanjay Singh said, ‘I demand from the government of this country that the ED and CBI should be investigated immediately and those who are corrupt in this, they should be caught and put in jail.’
