CM using religions for politics: TDP


TTD turned into a pocket trust for YCP leaders: Ananda Surya
Dept CM telling lies on laddus supply in Thondavada

AMARAVATI: TDP State Vice President V. Ananda Surya on Saturday expressed concern that Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has been using the Hindu Dharmic organisations and the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams for his party political and personal interests.

Mr. Ananda Surya said that by misusing religions for his narrow minded goals, the Chief Minister has turned into a fake believer and a false devotee. The way Mr. Jagan Reddy has behaved before the 2019 elections and afterwards would raise doubts whether he was a Christian or a Hindu.

Addressing a press conference here, the TDP leader asserted that ever since the YCP came to power in the State, attacks and desecrations were continuing on the temples and the trusts. The TTD and the Hindu trusts were being turned into the pocket organisations for the YCP leaders all over the State. The Tirumala Temple laddus were not available to the regular pilgrims but they were being supplied in large numbers to the ruling party leaders.

Mr. Ananda Surya demanded the YCP leaders to explain how they could distribute lakhs of sacred laddus of the Tirumala God to the voters. It was irresponsible on the part of Deputy Chief Minister Narayana Swamy to say that they had no idea of how so many laddus reached Thondavada panchayat in the Chandragiri mandal. The YCP leaders had no respect for the purity and sacredness of the Seven Hills laddu prasadam.

The TDP leader said that Endowments Minister Vellampalli Srinivas was totally scared of the ongoing ACB attacks on the Durga Temple in Vijayawada. The Minister was terrified that his corruption activities at the Durga Temple would get exposed in the current raids. It was only out of frustration that Mr. Vellampalli Srinivas was making baseless allegations against former CM Chandrababu Naidu.

Mr. Ananda Surya criticised the Government for not initaiting any action against the culprits responsible for the smuggling of so many laddus to Thondavada.
