Save TTD, Ramana Deekshitulu pleads Modi!

Save TTD, Ramana Deekshitulu pleads Modi!

The ever-disgruntled honorary head priest of the Lord Venkateshwara temple of Tirumala, Dr. A V Ramana Deekshitulu, known for his controversial comments against the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) management, has once again stirred controversy.

On Monday, Ramana Deekshitulu took to X (formerly Twitter) to complain to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the state of affairs in the temple management.

In his post, he expressed concern about the Tirumala temple being in the control of non-Sanatani officers and the government, accusing them of systematically destroying ancient traditions, constructions, and assets of Hindu temples under TTD.

"Good morning hon PMji. Tirumala temple is in the clutches of non-Sanatani officer and the government, who are systematically destroying ancient traditions constructions and assets of Hindu temples under TTD," Deekshitulu said in his post.

He urged the Prime Minister to rescue not only the Tirumala temple but also to establish a Hindu rashtra.

"Kindly save the temple and establish Hindu rashtra here immediately. God bless you," the TTD head priest requested.

The Prime Minister had visited the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala on Monday and offered prayers for the well-being, good health, and prosperity of all Indians.

Deekshitulu, who has a history of expressing dissatisfaction and feeling neglected by TTD authorities, used this opportunity to convey his message in response to Modi's tweet.

In the past, he has criticized TTD executive officer A V Dharma Reddy and former TTD chairman Y V Subba Reddy. On Monday, he even brought the Jagan Mohan Reddy government into the controversy.

Earlier this month, Ramana Deekshitulu posted another tweet demanding the restoration of status to hereditary archakas.

He urged the Chief Minister to instruct TTD to implement the promised status to the illegally retired hereditary archakas, emphasizing that TTD was not respecting the Chief Minister's poll promises over the years.
