He has hit out at the opposition alleging that the opponents have indulged in politics on this issue. Reacting to his alleged comments at former minister Ashok Gajapati Raju, the AP Minister has faulted Ashok Gajapathi Raju's position in the position of a chairman of Rama Swamy Devasthanam, Ramatheertham and other such temples. He has alleged that Ashok Gajapathi Raju failed to seriously carry out his duties in the desecration of an idol in Ramatheertham temple.
