Samuel Reddy, the Andhra CM, works very methodically and ceaselessly to do the real damage to Hindu infrastructure. His focus is unparalleled. His cronies are on the job of occupying huge tracts of lands in Tirupathi town through force and fear. That the management of the Holy Shrine is in the hands of crypto xtians is an evident for a casual visitor. The reception is rude, the Holy Darshan is most painful, there are no laminated images of the Lord in many cottages, beds are infested with bugs. The Mandir surroundings are sterile and a silent hand of the cross is evident. Every road leading to the Holy Town is lined up with numerous churches. None of these seem accidental. Now that there is a High Court Order staying sale of Mandir lands, the speed is somewhat slow, but not shelved at all. May be through a vacation of stay order it will be enabled. The latest fad is to sell any piece of property under any department to his cronies. It is openly said that this government doesn'tcare if it will ever come back to power, hence sell the land to friends and relatives under any pretext and be done with it! He wants to give 99 year lease of all government hospital properties?once again guess who will take the cake! Hindu bodies must maintain ceaseless vigil or else the loss will be permanent. Here is a small sample?News from Eenadu
