The TDP has dropped its proposal to stage a protest in Tirumala and instead decided to hold a demonstration in front of the office of TTD executive officer in Tirupati on August 7. TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, accompanied by a few leaders, would, instead walk to Tirumala from Alipiri and offer prayers to Lord Venkateswara seeking his blessings to prevent ‘rampant corruption and irregularities' at Tirumala. They would visit other major temples like Kanipakam and Srikalahasti in Chittoor the next day in the light of complaints of “irregularities” being committed by the respective trust boards. Addressing a press meet here on Saturday, MLAs G. Muddukrishnam Naidu and B. Gopalakrishna Reddy expressed concern over the way the tickets of special sevas were being auctioned by the TTD board members and land of the Devasthanam being handed over to private parties.
