Why DMK govt. Demolished Anjaneyar Swamy temple in Chennai

Ground Report | New Delhi: Anjaneyar Swamy temple Demolished; The DMK government has carried out the demolition of Sri Rama's Sri Narasimha Anjaneyar Swamy Temple in Chennai on the grounds of invasion. Treasury officials along with the police force headed by the Tambaram Assistant Commissioner visited the site and began to demolish the temple.

Following the controversy, the Tambaram commissioner issued a clarification saying that other structures were also being torn down along with the temple in accordance with the Madras High Court directive from 2015. Around 20 people who protested and argued with the police yesterday were reportedly arrested and detained in a nearby community room.

The temple authority had reportedly sought time until April 16, 2022, Hanuman Jayanti, which was agreed but not agreed as the demolition was carried out independently. In early July last year, the government of MK Stalin Tamil Nadu had demolished a 125-year-old temple on the banks of Muthannankulam in order to eliminate invasions under the Smart City project.
