Mr. Reddy’s profile has more than 60,000 followers. “Annoyed that I haven’t spent enough time with her. My granddaughter Samaira tied me up to a pillar and demanded that I should stay at home to play with her,” Mr. Reddy wrote. The Congress leader has a son and a daughter.

Mr. Raghuveera Reddy, in the past two years, was seen in public as a common man or farmer tilling his own land or busy getting the temple constructed Mr. Reddy, along with his wife Sunitha, has been living in Neelakanthapuram, 5 km away from Madakasira since May 2019, and supervising the construction of the temple.
