Discover the controversy surrounding a leaked list by the Ayodhya Development Authority, naming illegal colonizers including prominent politicians. Learn how land parcels are being sold off or regularized and how this relates to the planning of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Three BJP politicians were reportedly included in a "leaked list" from the Ayodhya Development Authority (ADA) that claimed identified "illegal colonizers," and now, according to ThePrint, there is a rush to either sell off these plots of property or get them regularized.

A list of alleged "illegal scheming" by the ADA, which is defined as the acquisition of sizable land parcels and the subsequent sale of those parcels in sections without the approval of the relevant authorities, emerged last August and was widely circulated on social media.

The ADA has released a list of 40 locations in Banbirpur, naming prominent figures such as then-mayor Rishikesh Upadhyay, sitting Ayodhya MLA Ved Prakash Gupta, and former Milkipur legislator Gorakhnath Baba. The agency claims it did not release the list, but has bulldozed structures in four locations since. The agency has previously denied the list's existence.

ThePrint visited all five of these locations and discovered that the people who live there are either seeking to sell them off or obtaining the necessary ADA approval.

The most important of these places is Bag Bijaisi, where it is thought that land parcels were sold to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra, the trust in charge of planning the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Buldozings were confirmed in Tarapur Rajauli-Gaura Patti, Bag Bijaisi, Banbirpur, next to Saketpuri Colony in Ranopali village, and close to Jaipuria School in Majha Kalan, according to ADA secretary Satyendra Singh. At Niyawan, he added, "an unlawful shopping complex was destroyed."

"Those that used illegal plotting have received between 1,000 and 1,200 notices, and they are getting the maps for their properties certified," He spoke to ThePrint. Before any development may start, maps or drawings of the property must be approved by the ADA.
