via PTI published on August 7, 2010

Faizabad, Aug 5 (PTI) The VHP today claimed that Bangladeshi Muslims have been alloted houses in Ayodhya and threatened to launch an agitation to evict them, a charge refuted by the district administration.

About 300 Muslim families were allotted houses in Kanshi Ram housing scheme, one of the dream projects of the Mayawati government launched for urban poor two years ago. Under the scheme, the Faizabad district administration has developed a colony adjacent to Karsewakpuram, the local headquarters of VHP in Ayodhya, where about 300 houses have been allotted to Muslim families living below the poverty line.

Alleging that most of those families were Bangladeshi Muslims, a delegation of senior VHP leaders led by Ram Vilas Vedanti met Faizabad District Magistrate MP Agrawal and demanded immediate eviction of the families. They threatened to launch an agitation had these families were not evicted within a week. Agrawal, however, said the allottees have been scrutinised many times rubbished the charge.
