Allahabad High Court Gives A Green Signal To The Proposed Banke Bihari Temple Corridor In Mathura
Prayagraj, November 20 (TNA) The Allahabad High Court (HC) On Monday cleared the decks for the proposed plan to build a corridor around the famous Banke Bihari temple in Mathura. The HC allowed the UP Government to proceed with its proposed plan to construct a Corridor around the Banke Bihari temple in Mathura, and remove encroachment over the approach lanes leading to the Temple, which is visited by millions every year.
This, the court said, should be done without hampering devotees' darshan of the deity. The Allahabad High Court however restrained the UP Government from utilising funds deposited in the Bank belonging to the Deity for the construction of the Corridor.
The direction has been issued in a PIL plea filed concerning the crowd management along with the safety and security of pilgrims visiting Banke Bihari Temple in Vrindavan. Double bench of Allahabad High Court comprising Chief Justice Pritinker Diwaker and Justice Ashutosh Srivastava delivered the verdict on the PIL filed by petitioner Anant Sharma.
Allahabad High Court had reserved its decision after the completion of the hearing on November 8. Next hearing is on January 31, 2024.
