Amid the Gyanvapi mosque row, the MNS has claimed that two dargahs had been built on the Punyeshwar temple land in Maharashtra`s Pune city.
MNS general secretary Ajay Shinde on Sunday said they have launched the
Punyeshwar Mukti (free the temple land) campaign, and appealed to people to support the Raj Thackeray-led party`s fight in restoring the temple land.
Citing a recent survey of the Gyanvapi mosque, Shinde said government has started waking up in the wake of Raj Thackeray`s stand on Hindutva.
“Like Gyanvapi, we are also fighting for the Punyeshwar temple in Pune,” he said.
Shinde claimed that a commader of Khilji dynasty ruler Alauddin Khilji had demolished the Punyeshwar and Narayaneshwar temples in Pune and later dargahs were built on the land
