Jagan looting even sacred place of Tirumala, says Putta Sudhakar


Even world-renowned pilgrim centres like the Tirumala are no exception for Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, to loot, observed former chairman of Tirumala, Tirupathi Devasthanams (TTD) Trust Board, Putta Sudhakar Yadav.

Sudhakar Yadav told media persons that Jagan, along with his gang looting the pilgrims of the most renowned temple in the world, the Tirumala. The Chief Minister revised the rents of the rooms from Rs 150 to Rs 1,700 and from Rs 200 to Rs 2,000, Sudhakar Yadav said, adding that the State government did not make any changes in the rooms but only revised the rents.

“What is astonishing is that the advance being collected from the pilgrims as security deposit is not being refunded,” he stated.

Even since Jagan Reddy came to power, the darshan of Lord Venkateswara to the pilgrims has become so difficult that they have to wait for days if not a week for the dashan. “Earlier the pilgrims were confident that they would have darshan of the Lord maximum in hours, if not in a day. But now they are sure when they will have the darshan and will return home. This is the prevailing situation on the Seven Hills,” he observed.

This apart, there is no proper maintenance of the accounts for the hundi collection and other assets of the Lord and no proper accounts are being submitted to the authorities on the donations being given by the pilgrims, Sudhakar said.

Even the annual functions like the Vaikunta Ekadasi are being turned into a day of collections, the former TTD Trust Board chairman remarked and stated that the pilgrims are being subjected to looting under the guise of the TTD.

“I really feel ashamed to say that the world’s most famous temple is being ransacked and I demand that the TTD officials ensure that there are no hurdles for the pilgrims for the darshan of the Lord,” Mr Putta Sudhakar Yadav said. He also wanted that the rents of the rooms be brought down and the security advance be refunded to the pilgrims.

TTD Chairman Yadav resigns, to be replaced by a Reddy


Putta Sudhakar Yadav, Chairman of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, resigned from the post after a prolonged wait. About 10 out of the total 16 TTD members have already resigned. But Sudhakar Yadav stayed on saying he would wait for the government decision. There has been talk that the YCP government will bring in an ordinance to replace Yadav, who belongs to BC community.

It is decided already that new TTD Chairman would be former MP YV Subba Reddy, who is a close relative of CM Jaganmohan Reddy. There have been doubts raised over the social engineering claims of Jagan as a very important post of TTD Chairman is being given to a Reddy while the previous TDP government chose a BC candidate.
During the recent visit of Telangana CM KCR to Amaravati, no importance was given to weaker sections leaders or ministers. Only minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy, YV Subba Reddy were present along with Jagan during talks with KCR. Now the TTD episode of replacing a BC with a Reddy is putting a lot of question marks on the social justice claims of Jagan and his team. In the recent Assembly also, YCP MLAs one after another claimed how Jagan gave top priority to SC, ST, BC and Minorities.
