A 300-year-old Shiva temple, 86 shops and homes were demolished with bulldozers in Rajasthan’s Alwar district on Sunday, to clear the way for a road.

Rajasthan Congress has alleged that Vasundhara Raje was the Chief Minister when BJP had promised a road called the “Gaurav Path” at the spot where the demolitions took place.

Earlier today, BJP Rajasthan president Dr Satish Poonia said, “I have constituted a 5-member committee for the factual investigation of the Rajgarh (Alwar) temple case. This committee will go to the spot, prepare a factual report and submit the report to me.” (ANI)
