Cadres plan temple for Naidu in Amaravati

Cadres plan temple for Naidu in Amaravati

For all its panache, the new Andhra capital of Amaravati will also house a symbol of sycophancy that promises to grant Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu godly status.

If things go by plan for Telugu Desam Party (TDP) cadres in the capital city’s Harischandrapuram, they would have a temple for Naidu in six months from the date of foundation.

“He is like god for people of Guntur-Vijayawada-Tenali region,” TDP vice-president at Tulur mandal Buddi Satish Babu said. The mandal is at the heart of the newly emerging capital city. “Thanks to him this place is going to become world famous and lives of people here are going to change for ever,” he added.

Speaking to reporters, Satish Babu said sculptors at Tenali –who had fashioned out the statue of Congress President Sonia Gandhi for her fans in Telangana—are working on a life-size idol of the Chief Minister.

He also said the Naidu temple would have a regular priest  performing Ashtottaram, Sahasranamam and Abishekam as per devotee’s wishes. Satish said he would consult agama experts that could be performed in the temple.

“The initial estimates are that it could be built with Rs 20 lakh pooled in from local cadres,” Satish Babu said.

Assuring that the temple project would not go ahead if Naidu asks them to stop, Satish said he would instead ask the TDP leader to permit them to erect a massive statue on the banks of Krishna.
