Ayyanna Patrudu makes controversial comments on seer Swaroopanandendra over Ramatheertham incident
Former TDP minister Ayyanna Patrudu slammed Visakha Sri Sarada Peetham seer Sri Swaroopanandendra Swamy for not responding over the incident of unidentified persons vandalising the idol of Lord Rama in Ramatheertham temple near Vizianagaram. He criticised Swaroopanandendra for not telling Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to protect the Hindu temples from attacks.
The TDP leader faulted the media for not publishing reports of opposition parties in their newspapers and not broadcasting news related to opposition leaders on TV channels. He made the CM and DGP Gautam Sawang responsible for the attacks on Hindu temples.
