Simhachalam temple’s chief priest reacts on his suspension
Responding to his suspension, Gopalakrishna Krishnamacharyulu, the chief priest of Simhachalam temple, said that he was suspended without a reason. The temple EO Venkateswara Rao had suspended Krishnamacharyulu for allowing the private person by name Tirupati Srinu during the Chandanotsavam.
Speaking to TV9, Krishnamacharyulu said he was not aware of who Srinu was and stated he was suspended with an ulterior motive. He asked the EO to probe as to how Srinu had gained entry into the temple when the security was in place. Row over chief priest suspension getting murkier.
