Sangeet Som's Taj Mahal a blot remark fails to get Yogi Adityanath's endorsement
Adityanath said that his government has been working towards the revival of heritage structures in the state.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today said that BJP MLA Sangeet Som's comments on Taj Mahal are his personal opinion and the state government doesn't endorse them.
Adityanath said that his government has been working towards the revival of heritage structures in the state. He said that every historic monument is being considered by the government for tourism.
The chief minister is all set to visit Agra on October 26. He will also visit the Taj Mahal and attend a programme related to tourism.
Taj Mahal became the centre of controversy after BJP MLA Som on Monday said that it was built by traitor and that it was blot on Indian culture.
Som had said that the creator of Taj Mahal had imprisoned his father and even wiped out Hindus.
When asked about his thoughts on Owaisi and SP leader Azam Khan's rebuttal to Sangeet Som's statement, Adityanath said that it was unfortunate that their comments are taken seriously.
