Violation of Constitution, says Yechury

CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said on Wednesday that the laying of foundation stone for the Ram temple in Ayodhya by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a violation of the Constitution.

“The State takeover of the construction of the temple in the presence of the Governor and the CM [Chief Minister] of U.P. [Uttar Pradesh] is a negation of the secular democratic character of the Indian Republic,” he said in a series of tweets.

CPI general secretary D. Raja said: “Today’s ceremony and the participation of the RSS chief has confirmed that the RSS runs the government.”
