BJP activists raise Cain over ‘cross’

Wednesday September 12 2007 14:30 IST <SMALL>ENS</SMALL>

<SMALL>TIRUPATI: BJP activists demolished a fibre structure resembling ‘Holy Cross’ at Alipiri, the gateway to Tirumala, this evening.

Learning of a six feet structure was being taken to Tirumala and was waiting at Alipiri for routine security checks, BJP activists rushed to the spot and climbed the truck and destroyed the pillar.

The 15 feet pillar was a sample of the 125 pillars being taken to Tirumala to line up the four Mada Streets for the Brahmotsavams.

BJP leaders Bhanuprakash Reddy, Samanchi Srinivas and others opposed the move of the TTD to erect such structures on Tirumala.

When contacted by this website’s News Paper, TTD Chief Engineer BVS Koteswara Rao said that they were installing the pillars resembling the architecture of the era of Sri Krishnadevaraya along the four Mada Streets, behind the galleries, for the annual Brahmotsavams.

These structures were to be used for hanging pots and bells adorned with flowers as part of the decorations.

The destruction of the fibre pillars was an act of ignorant fools, he remarked.</SMALL>
