TTD another row on ‘Vaikuntha Dwara Darsanam’


Ex Chief Secretary LV Subrahmanyam actively and innocently supported CM Jagan Reddy in every step without realising what would happen to him later. Similarly, TTD Agama Advisor Ramana Deekshitulu is crossing all limits to support any proposals brought by YCP sympathisers. In just a few days, Deekshitulu gave his second approval for changing long-established traditions in the Seven Hills Temple.

The latest controversy is that the TTD is going ahead to extend Vaikuntha Dwara Darsanam to devotees from two days to 10 days. Without losing any time, Ramana Deekshitulu has waved green flag for this saying that this extension will not go against the Agama Shastra. But, the traditionalists say that Vaikuntha Dwara Darsanam will be like ordinary darsan only if it is done on days other than the fixed two days every year.

Devotees are accusing TTD of breaking the long-cherished traditions for the sake of taking commercial advantages out of religious beliefs. Ramana Deekshitulu is facing criticism from priests for supporting these ungodly activities. No doubt, Deekshitulu will one day regret his actions just like LV Subrahmanyam.
