The controversial former head priest of Tirumala, Ramana Deekshitulu, who was relieved by the AP state government based on age, has met YS Jagan Mohan Reddy today at his posh residence Lotus Pond in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
Amidst strong allegations from TDP that Ramana Deekshitulu is acting at the behest of YCP and BJP, Ramana Deekshitulu's meeting with Jagan has added fuel to the ongoing speculations. It can be noted that earlier Ramana Deekshitulu had met BJP's senior leaders including Subramanya Swamy.
TDP's Mullapudi Renuka has come down heavily on Ramana Deekshitulu over his meeting with Jagan. Shooting a straight question Renuka said what business does Ramana Deekshitulu have with YS Jagan who belongs to "different religion" (not Hindu). Renuka alleged that this meet has now exposed the "fact" that who is behind all this drama in TTD.
CM Chandrababu Naidu was asked to respond on Ramana Deekshitulu and Jagan's meeting. Naidu alleged that the duo is hatching another conspiracy against the state government. In a hard tone, Naidu said anyone who tries to spoil the image of Tirumala wouldn't be spared at all. Naidu said he would not tolerate the politics around "God" and "Religion" that he indicated that it was orchestrated by "BJP and its friendly parties".
MLC Buddha Venkanna too responded on Jagan and Ramana Deekshitulu's meet. Buddha said the "conspiracy" has now been "revealed".
