The execution of Afzal Guru, the accused in the attack on the Parliament Building, had its echo in the temple city of Tirupati on Saturday.

BJP and other Sangh Parivar cadres ‘celebrated’ the moment by distributing sweets to the public and the pilgrims at the railway station.

The Parivar functionaries led by the State official spokesperson of the BJP, G. Bhanuprakash Reddy, said though the Congress-led UPA government dilly-dallied a lot, it was never the less a welcome decision.
