Calling it an apparent end to the communal campaign taken by oppositions BJP and TDP against the Jagan-led AP government over the series of attacks on Hindu temples in the state, the ruling YSRCP government on Thursday formed state and district level ‘communal harmony committees.’
By the time the young government fathom the reports from various political circles, TTD honourary chief priest Ramana Deekshitulu has pushed the Chief Minister into splits.
The priest who is quite active on social media and enjoys decent followership, on Friday took to his Twitter account making an interesting demand.

Tagging CM Jagan and TTD Chairman YV Subba Reddy in his tweet, the most controversial priest urged the government to take up the reconstruct Lord Venkateswara’s Theru Mandapam and Veyyikaalla Mandapam.
Expressing happiness over government’s decision to resurrect the demolished temples in the state, Raman Deekshithulu reminded that the sentiments of crores of Andhrites are intertwined with the two mentioned constructions.
The tweet assumed significance amidst the rumours that Deekshithulu has turned to BJP against the Jagan-led government. The openly questioning the protection to the priests who were affected by Covid-19 and ex-gratia to the deceased priest grabbed media attention back then.
