Kamakhya Temple Not Being Properly Maintained: SC
A bench of Justices comprising Justice Ajay Rastogi and CT Ravikumar hearing a matter relating to the maintenance of the temple said that there cannot be any compromise on hygiene.
Justice Rastogi who visited the place during vacation observed, “I was there during the vacations, and the temple is not being properly maintained. This is my personal opinion. There can’t be any compromise on hygiene.”
Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, who appeared for the temple, submitted that it is case where few people have been writing letters saying hygiene is not being taken care of.
He informed the apex court that the temple is being taken care of by bringing in expert bodies like the Indian Institute of Technology.
Meanwhile, the court deferred the matter for hearing in January 2023 to enable a cooperative solution between the parties.
Last year, the top court disposed off a contempt plea by the elected priest representing members of Bordeuri Samaj of Kamakhya Devalaya which alleged misappropriation of funds by Kamakhya Debutter Board.
