SC to hear UP govt on Taj Mahal parking October 27”

The Uttar Pradesh government's plea was taken up on Monday, with the court asking the state to file an affidavit by Tuesday.

According to a news agency, the monument will be open for tourists and the entry will be allowed as per the routine process during his visit.

Over 14,000 policemen were deployed across the city for the security of Mr. Adityanath, who arrived in Agra early on October 26.

As per the schedule of the event, the Chief Minister will spend half an hour at the graves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal.

The Chief Minister is also scheduled to launch Pro-Poor Tourism projects and address a public gathering at the GIC ground later in the day. Also, consider as a mega cleanliness campaign around the west gate of Taj Mahal. he also quoted that the campaign will see the participation of social workers and 500 BJP activists. It is probably for this reason and reportedly under pressure from the Centre, Yogi made a course correction a few days ago, saying the Taj was built by the blood and sweat of Indians.

Adityanath's visit comes over three weeks after his government introduced the booklet which catalogues important tourist destinations in the state but found no mention of the white marble stunner.

The CM also sanctioned Rs 370 crore on the behalf of the state government for the development of Agra and promotion of tourism.

UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath takes part in cleanliness drive at the Taj Mahal on Friday.

Bhati later said the plan for the multi-level parking was cleared by a court-appointed Committee on Environment, Taj Trapezium Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority, Archaeological Survey of India and Agra Development Authority.

"Foreign dignitaries visiting the country used to be gifted replicas of the Taj Mahal and other minarets which did not reflect Indian culture..."

Subsequently, BJP MLA Sangeet Som called Taj Mahal a "blot on Indian history" and BJP MP Vinay Katiyar said it was originally a Shiva temple.

The last time a UP CM visited the Taj was Akhilesh Yadav, more than two years back.
