After a controversy over its non-inclusion of Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh Government's recently released tourism booklet,  BJP MLA Sangeet Som has now said that the historic monument was built by traitors. 

Som, who is the sitting BJP MLA from the Sardhana assembly constituency, reportedly said that the iconic Taj Mahal should have no place in the Indian history as it was built by traitors. 

Calling Taj Mahal 'a blot on the India culture', Som said, "It was built by a person (Shahjahan) who imprisoned his own father." 

Som made these remarks while addressing a function at Sisoli village in Meerut district on Sunday.

Som made these remarks days after the UP tourism booklet, which was released to mark six months of the Yogi Adityanath government, omitted Taj Mahal while outlining plans for new attractions including a tour of monuments and locations central to the Ramayana. 

It also included existing tourist destinations like the Gorakhpur temple.
