Government land used to erect temple Odisha, November 28, 2013: I was at Phulbani on 23rd Nov. It was a surprise for me to note that a small temple has been built on govt land opposite to Catholic Church at Phulbani.

The temple has been built during past two month’s time. because during my last visit to Phulbani, there was no temple. How could a temple be built on govt land in a town which is headquarters of the district?

Is it possible without support of district administration? A temple built on govt land opposite to church is surely with malafide intentions.

According to Fr Angelo, the Asst parish priest of Phulbani, he had met the collector to discuss the matter. He told the collector that it is possible that both christians and Hindus may have a feast on same day and crowds may on both sides to the road, some persons in the crowd may be intoxicated too. Hence there is every possibility of breach of peace. According to Fr Angelo, response of the collector was not satisfactory.
