Telangana CM KCR to offer nose stud to Kanaka Durga temple in Vijayawada
Author: Desk June 28, 2018
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has stoked controversy again as he is all set to make an offering of a nose stud to the presiding diety at the Kanaka Durga Goddess temple in Vijayawada on Thursday.
Before the state of Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated, KCR had vowed that he would present gold ornaments to various gods and goddesses after the state of Telangana was carved out.
Last year in February, unfazed by criticism, KCR continued his ‘holy’ tour to appease the gods by presenting a gold moustache to Lord Veerabhadra Swamy in Telangana’s Mahbubabad district. The gold moustache cost taxpayers more than Rs. 60,000.
He also offered gold ornaments worth Rs 5 crore to Lord Balaji atop Tirumala, all paid for by the state exchequer.
The chief minister, along with his family members, ministers and top officials arrived via two special aircrafts for the ‘thanksgiving’ trip to the Tirumala temple, where he presented the ornaments.
