Chennai : According to official reports ‘Town and Country Planning department(TCPD)’, A lock and seal order against the organisation was imposed in 2012.
R Selvaraj, deputy director in-charge of the TCPD, Coimbatore, said there is no permission given to organisation led by yoga guru Jaggi Vasudev for constructions at that site. The TCPD also said we had asked Isha Foundation to submit all documents related to the construction and get permission from the Hill Area Conservation Authority.
But when Isha foundation is inviting PM Modi to inaugurate an Illegal construction who need permission?
An activist Nityanand Jayaraman said talking to reporter that, the Tamil Nadu government should have tried to stop the Mahashivratri event where PM Modi was chief guest to unveil the 120ft Siva statue which is an illegal construction. As they knew that the required documents had not been submitted. “The Prime Minister’s office has been party to an illegality,” Jayaraman told The NewsMinute.
Isha Foundation, in a statement on its blog, had dismissed the allegations and said that those with vested interests were trying to sabotage their Mahashivratri celebrations. The statement had said that necessary approvals had been obtained.
There were more that 500 protestor arrested by the police for trying to stage a demonstration against Modi’s unveiling of the controversial Shiva statue constructed by Isha Foundation on February 24. The statue is dedicated to “Adiyogi”, a form of Shiva who in the Hindu tradition is considered the first of yogis.

Hence those protestor who have been arrested for raising the voice against Supreme Leader NaMo will be soon labelled as anti-national.
