New Delhi: Challenging BJP spokespersons' claims regarding what the Opposition is terming as Ram Temple 'land scam', AamAadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh on Wednesday presented new documents regarding the land deal in which land worth ₹2 crores was purchased by the Shri Ram JanmabhoomiTeerthaKshetra Trust at over ₹18 crores within 'minutes'. Taking part in television debates over the issue, BJP spokespersons claimed that the land agreement was done over a decade, as also 'confirmed' by Sultan Ansari and Ravi Mohan Tiwari. Hence, the allegations of price change in minutes are baseless.
Sanjay Singh on Wednesday said the previous agreement was canceled before the new agreement was made in March 2021 and hence the defense that the price has agreed over a period of time does not hold water. A day after his Delhi residence allegedly came under attack for his Ram Temple allegations, the MP said, "No matter how many times you attack me, I will continue to raise my voice against the corruption committed in the name of Lord Ram..if there is anything that is posing as a roadblock to the construction work, it is the embezzlement of the fund. AAP too wants Ram Temple construction work to be completed soon."
Ram Temple Trust head ChampatRai bought this land in question from Ravi Mohan Tiwari and Sultan Ansari at ₹18.50 crore. Minutes before, Tiwari and Ansari bought the land from KusumPathak and Harish Pathak at ₹2 crores. Both the transactions took place in front of the same witnesses and minutes apart. Out of this ₹18.5 crore, ₹17 crores was paid through RTGS. The land measuring 1.208 hectares is located in Bag Bjaisi village under Sadar tehsil of Ayodhya district.
