TN Temple Administration body illegally occupied 45 temples : TR Ramesh


Chennai – A public interest litigation (PIL) petition filed in the Madras High Court by TR Ramesh of Indic Collective Trust accuses the officers of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments (HR&CE) of illegally occupying 45 temples in Tamil Nadu. Justices MM Sundresh and R Hemalatha ordered a notice to be issued to the State Government after hearing the PIL.

TR Ramesh said, “Government Executive Officers are behaving like squatters or encroachers in Hindu temples – 45 large temples including the Madurai Meenakshi Temple, Srirangam Ranganathar Swamy Temple, Thiruvarur Thyagaraja Swamy Temple, Srivilliputhur Nachiar Devasthanam, Tiruchendur Subramania Swamy Temple, and Arunachaleshwarar Temple in Tiruvannamalai. This is fraud and deceit by the Government”.
