Naidu plays Hindu card ahead of Tirupati by-poll!

Naidu plays Hindu card ahead of Tirupati by-poll!

With just 10 days left for the by-elections to Tirupati parliamentary seat, Telugu Desam Party president and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has once again sought to play the Hindu card to appease the Hindu voters.

Naidu who is likely to take part in a week-long campaign in Tirupati shortly, has raised the issue of attacks on temples once again, alleging that the YSR Congress government was deliberately targeting the Hindu places of worship.

In a statement, the TDP chief said some miscreants attacked and demolished idols at the Srivalli Devasena Sametha Subrahmanyeswara Swamy Temple located atop Betagutta near Gonuguru village in Kuppam mandal.

He said the negligence of the government was making the miscreants bold enough to carry out more and more attacks on the temples. The Kuppam incident came as a big shock not only to the people of the Chittoor district but the entire State as a whole.

“If the Jagan Reddy regime had taken strong steps to nab the perpetrators of the temple attacks in the past, this incident would not have been repeated now. The ruling party leaders had no respect for the sentiments of the devotees of any religion,” Naidu alleged.

He demanded that the YSRC government awaken from its slumber and prove its sincerity as far as the temple attacks were concerned. The Chief Minister should order an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) if he had any commitment to the devotees and the general public.
