After row over Yogi Adityanath’s statement on Lord Hanuman being a “Dalit”, many people in different parts of country are trying to take undue political mileage from the controversy.

Such people are encouraging members of “Dalit” community to forcible occupy temples of Lord Hanuman.

One such incident took place in Ballabhgarh on Thursday when attempts were made to forcibly occupy a temple of Lord Hanuman in the name of caste.

Police force was deployed at Ambedkar Chowk in the city when the administration received reports that Scheduled Caste members were trying to forcibly occupy Lord Hanuman temple in the area.

Tension immediately gripped the area and shopkeepers put their shutters down.
