YSRCP accuses CBN of demolishing 40 temples

YSRCP senior leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy accused CBN of using religious places for political motives.

Addressing the media on Thursday he condemned the decision of restricting the age limit of the priests of the Tirupati Devasthanam taken by the governing council.

He said that the two-year term governing council has no right to restrict the age of the priests to 65 years.  Only four families have been conducting the pujas and other services since generations and it was endorsed by various religious heads as the practice has been in vogue for the past 2,000 years, he added.

He accused Chandrababu Naidu of sidestepping the issue which was raised by the chief priest Ramana Deekshitulu by doing such means. The chief priest was earlier seen asking pointed questions and now by bringing up the age issue CBN is trying to silence him, he said.

Though British and Muslims as well had ruled this part of the state, they had never interfered with the temple rituals and the TTD Board has been doing it now at the behest of Chandrababu Naidu, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu has the record of demolishing 45 temples in and around Vijayawada and has been after temple lands which show his obsession of land grabbing, he said.
