Chennai: The Bharat Mata statue continues to remain covered by the Tamil Nadu administration. 

The jubilation on social media was short-lived. The statue was uncovered for 30-mins and then the Tamil Nadu administration covered it again.

The Bharat Mata statue stands on the premises of Issaki Amman temple, which is 200 years old. The land is a private property and the owner installed a statue and adorned it with a tri-colour saree. They are worshipping her along with the villagers.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Baskaran acting on the order of the Revenue Department ordered his officers to cover the statue. 

The compliant was filed by a villager reportedly egged on the Christian groups in the village.

In his petition to the district collector, T Muthukumar, owner of the Temple, said, “The statue was on our Patta land without affecting public peace or law and order. It did not create any communal clashes. My ancestors built the temple, and we have been maintaining the same for generations.”

Reacting strongly to the covering of the statue of Bharat Mata, BJP leaders Tarun Vijay and KJ Alphons have sought Chief minister EK Palaniswami’s intervention in the matter.
