Politicisation of Hindu temples is a new trend in AP: Vundavalli
Former MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar said on Tuesday that a new trend of politicising the Hindu temples has started in Andhra Pradesh. Speaking to the media in Rajahmundry, Vundavalli said that all major political parties want to take advantage of issues related to temples.
“I regularly visit famous Tirumala and Annavaram temples but I never heard of the Ramatheertham temple in Vizianagaram district,” he said. Arun has quoted some statements made by Swami Vivekananda on religious tolerance in India. “I will face criticism for saying Vivekananda’s words on religions,” he added.
