Tirumala, the abode of Lord Venkateswara the powerful God of Hindu faith managed by TTD is a richest temple next to Vatican City in the world, is in the news for all the wrong reasons. Upon hearing the news on corruption in TTD like many Hindus, my feelings were hurt.
I am not particularly in support of any political party and do not want to be branded either. However, I must say ever since congress government in Andhra Pradesh took over the reins of government it encouraged and indulged in corruption. It appointed political persons on the TTD administrative body. Since then mismanagement of funds, offerings, sale of tickets, awarding contracts for TTD works, diverting the funds to their personal pet projects ,giving unauthorized VIP darshans , break darshans etc were at peak.
