Provincial Armed Constubulary (PAC) and police teams have been deployed at the Hanuman Dham apprehending attempts by Bhim Army activists to assume control of the temple, officials said.
So far, there's no report of any untoward incident taking place, they said.
Hanuman was a forest dweller, deprived and a Dalit. Bajrang Bali worked to unite all Indian communities, from north to south and east to west, Adityanath had said while addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Alwar district.
