Bangalore, January 3: “The ruling BJP government has an ulterior motive behind granting autonomous status to state temples. One faction of the party has kept its evil eyes on temple property. The ruling party’s religious mafia, which does business in the name of God, planned this plot to encroach on temple property, ”said opposition leader and former chief minister Siddaramaiah.
Siddaramaiah further accused the ruling BJP government and said, “The temples are independent even now. There is no point in the government saying it is going to make them independent. Government control of temples means that even the smallest member of a society has the right to control them. The plot of the BJP government’s plan to make them independent simply means that control will move away from the communities.
“The government is resorting to the management of the temple in the hands of only 2% of the population, ignoring the Kannadigas 5.5 crore fee. The policy of this government must be fought by all conscious and intelligent Hindus, ”he said.
