The appointment of a North Indian Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, Anil Singhal, as Executive Officer (EO) of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), has snowballed in to a controversy. Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan began the debate, by questioning the appointment. While no South Indian is heading important temples in the North, why North Indian in the South, he questioned. Sharada Peetadhipathi, Swami Swaroopananda Saraswati raised an important issue that Tirumala affairs are dealt by Aagama Sastras and a person who cannot read Telugu is not fit for the post. He said that he will go to court over the issue. TDP leaders are however opposing Pawan's tweets.
