TEM­PLE RUN

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

On March 16, Ut­tar Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Akhilesh Ya­dav laid the foun­da­tion stone in Vrin­da­van for what is be­ing de­scribed as the world’s big­gest tem­ple. Built by Ban­ga­lore-based Ak­shay Pa­tra Foun­da­tion, the Vrin­da­van tem­ple will be spread on 60 acres and will cost Rs 400 crore. Se­nior Congress lead­ers such as Pradeep Mathur and Ra­jeev Shukla were present on the oc­ca­sion, as were sev­eral Sa­ma­jwadi Party work­ers—yet it didn’t come un­der the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion scan­ner. Smart move.
