Kodali Nani, Somu Veerraju respond over TTD declaration row
Civil Supplies Minister Kodali Nani asked as to why only the Tirumala temple has a declaration rule and not other temples. He mentioned that Hindus offer prayers to several gods including Lord Venkateswara. The minister said that the issue needs to be debated.
However, AP BJP chief Somu Veerraju has raised the objection over debate on declaration. He made it clear that any non-Hindu should sign a declaration prior to entering the Tirumala temple. Endowments Minister Vellampalli Srinivasa Rao alleged that TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu is politiciting the issue of Tirumala declaration.
