The Supreme Court on Thursday rapped the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over preservation of Taj Mahal – the historic monument of love – and sought a vision document on the 17th-century mausoleum.

According to reports, the apex court also asked the Uttar Pradesh government to explain why there was a "sudden flurry of activities" in the Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ).

The TTZ is an area of about 10,400 sq kms spread over the districts of Agra, Firozabad, Mathura, Hathras and Etah in UP and Bharatpur in Rajasthan.

A bench of apex court justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta questioned Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the UP government, on why leather industries and hotels were coming up in the TTZ when such activities were stopped earlier.

"There is a sudden flurry of activities in the TTZ. Is there any particular reason for that? Leather industries and hotels are coming up there. Why? It should remain stopped. Why this activity is there in the TTZ?," the bench asked Mehta to explain.

Replying to the apex court, Mehta submitted that he would seek instructions on the issue and get back to the court.

The bench also asked the state government to file a vision document on protection and preservation of the 17th century mausoleum within four week.
