Congress general secretary and chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala termed it a “land scam”, saying there is an “open loot of land inside Ayodhya city by people connected to the BJP”.

“Respected Modiji, when will you open your mouth on this open loot? The Congress party, the people of the country and Ram Bhakts are asking these questions. Is this not treason? Is it anything less than treason? The BJP is now running the business of ‘Andher Nagri, Chaupat Raja’ in Ayodhya,” he told reporters.
