Former bureaucrat reveals that PM Narasimha Rao knew about a temple under Babri Masjid, but chose to remain silent

A startling revelation has come to light about the Ram Mandir saga in a book authored by the former principal secretary to the UP government Yogendra Narain. This allegation has emerged from the book ‘Born to Serve. Power Games in Bureaucracy’ authored by the former bureaucrat.

He has written in his book that the then Chief Minister of UP Kalyan Singh met PV Narasimha Rao. According to the book (page 78 and 79), the former principal secretary accompanied the CM to PM’s residence but remained outside when the one to one meeting happened. After the meeting, Kalyan Singh had informed him that Prime Minister told him about an ASI (Archeological Survey of India) report that had confirmed the existence of remnants of a temple under the masjid.

The bureaucrat has confirmed the incident on record to Times Now.

The bureaucrat said : [after 7: 15 in the above video ]

“These ASI findings could not have made any difference to what took place that day on December 6 and what happened thereafter, because both parties were rigid on their stance. Because one kept on saying that there was a temple there and the other said there was a masjid. The findings could have helped the Supreme Court in ascertaining. and if the Supreme Court had given the judgement, an early judgement based on those findings, perhaps this situation could have been avoided. Now, the Supreme Court must have also been depending not only on the report but, you know, reports of state government and central government. So, it is very difficult to say what would have happened, because the ASI report was only a  report was only a confidential report was made to the PM and Supreme Court because under the Supreme Court orders it had done the work. I think an early decision on this at that time by the court would have helped us.”

He also said that the BJP did not want the demolition of the temple to Times Now.

“I have a feeling that it was not the BJP party which wanted the demolition. It was these as we later found, Kar sevaks who had come from Maharashtra and other places who had very intense feelings on this, who had brought all this equipment to break [the mosque]. I would not like to take a political view of this, but I would reiterate that the PM Rao was fully aware of ASI findings, and I am sure that even if under RTI or by any other method, the reports could be taken out and given to Supreme Court or made public”

As per Yogendra Narain’s book, it appears that the Congress PM was aware of the existence of a Ram temple under the Babri Masjid, but the Congress PM had not revealed the facts to the public to gain political advantage over the BJP.
