UP: Top level meeting to discuss the reconstruction of Ram temple today

Lucknow, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 14 October 2013, 08:18 AM

A top level meeting of Uttar Pradesh officials is likely to take place on Monday to discuss the "reconstruction" of Ram temple at Ayodhya. 

As from the leaked letter issued by Secretary (Home) Saresh Chandra Mishra instructed the Director General of Police and other senior officials to attend a meeting on October 14 to discuss the "reconstruction" of Ram temple at Ayodhya and VHP.

The meeting likely to start at 05.00 pm.

A controversy had erupted over a communique by the state Home Secretary convening a meeting to discuss "reconstruction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya on the lines of Somnath Temple," with a red-faced SP government calling it an "error" and promising action against the guilty.

Principal Secretary (Home) R M Srivastava had to apologise for the "error" and take responsibility for the folly of "junior level" officials.

"There are errors in the letter issued on October 9 by the department for convening the meeting and parts of intelligence input on the VHP sponsored Sankalp Diwas on October 18, which should not have been made public, got mentioned in it," Srivastava had said at a press meet here.

"The language used in the letter is not correct," he had said.
