MUMBAI: The NCP today asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make clear his stand over the Taj Mahal controversy.

"The RSS, in its shakhas, gives out false preachings to people who are later inducted in the BJP and given constitutional posts. If what these people are saying is true, the prime minister should openly state that it is true," NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik told PTI.

"(But) If what they are saying it is wrong, then strict action should be taken against them for trying to communalise the society," he said.

Malik claimed that the controversy over the 17th-century architectural marvel is a well thought out plan by the BJP to divert attention from issues such as rising inflation, unemployment and deteriorating economy.

The world-famous monument has recently been in the crosshairs of controversy with BJP MLA Sangeet Som questioning its place in India's heritage.

Senior BJP leader Vinay Katiyar yesterday said the Taj Mahal was originally a Lord Shiva's temple called 'Tejo Mahal' which was converted into a mausoleum by Emperor Shahjahan.
