Entitled holders should get the rights: AAP
Aam Aadmi Party's state vice-president Shishupal Rawat said that by dissolving the Devasthanam Management Board, the state government should give their dues to the pilgrimage priests and rights holders. In a statement issued, the AAP vice-president said that by forcibly imposing the Devasthanam Board, the government has tried to cast on the rights of the rights holders and pilgrimage priests. It is not only playing with the honor of the rightful stripes and priests, but it is also violating them. In the Chardham, the pilgrim priests and rights holders are continuously agitating for their demands. But no decision is being taken by the government.
