AP Endowments Minister Manikyala Rao, who usually stays in news for wrong reasons, has courted yet another controversy. He has opined that the Tirumala Darshan should be allowed to common people only once a year with the help of Aadhar card and thus give more chance to ‘new’ devotees. This has certainly not gone well with the scores of devotees of Lord Balaji who often visit him.
Since Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam is India’s richest temple which has millions of devotees across the globe who regularly visit the God as per their wishes, desires, Manikyala Rao’s comments said to have ‘hurt’ the sentiments of the devotees who has a great attachment, bond to the God.
Manikyala Rao has further opined to ‘limit’ VIP break-darshan to 1 hour per day and once in a month. This is fine, but confining common people to visit only once a year is certainly not a welcome move.
Manikyala Rao recently came to the rescue of Ghazal Srinivas who was booked in a sexual assault case and later retracted his statement. The BJP legislator-turned-minister continues to make statements that irk the state government. #KhabarLive
