Why is KTR running after temples?

Why is KTR running after temples?

Telangana Rashtra Samithi working president and Information Technology minister K T Rama Rao, who claims to be following the footsteps of his father and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, never used to follow him in one aspect: practising religion.

Though KTR never claimed himself to be an atheist, he had never been seen in any religious ceremonies and rituals.

While KCR is always on temple hopping, KTR had never visited any temples, at least in the last 10 years.

Even when his father went on pilgrimages to Tirumala in the past, KTR did not accompany him, though his son and daughter were always seen with KCR.

Even when KCR performed massive Yagams like Sahasra Chandi Yagam and Sudarshana Yagam, KTR was not visible anywhere. So, the general impression one has about KTR is that he is a non-believer.

But of late, KTR made a surprise appearance in at least two temples: at Raja Rajeshwara Swamy temple at Vemulawada in Siricilla district last month and at Tirumala on Monday.

KTR was given a rousing reception at Tirumala temple, as it was perhaps the first visit at least in the last few years.

This has surprised many people, who are now wondering how KTR has suddenly turned spiritual. It was really interesting to know how a man who never went to temples and prayed god openly has now started doing it.

Highly placed sources said it was KCR who had advised his son to visit temples and religious places.

Reason: KTR’s horoscope apparently said he had the “Raja Yogam” this year and to achieve this, he has to worship gods and conduct special pujas.

Though KTR has no belief in these horoscopes, he thought it is better not to take any chances. Who knows he might become the chief minister, if he really turned spiritual?

So, he thought he could go on temple visits and try his luck!
