The controversy over Taj Mahal seems far from over. 

Anil Vij, senior cabinet minister of Haryana, has described the monument as a ‘beautiful graveyard.’ 

Vij posted the statement on his Twitter account. 

Taj Mahal has been in the eye of the storm since the Uttar Pradesh government dropped one of the seven wonders of the world from the booklet of Tourism department, drawing flak from various quarters. 

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had taken a potshot at Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath when he wrote on social media, “Andher Nagari Chaupat Raja.”

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi had asked if the government would tell tourists not to visit the monument.
