Andhra Pradesh: Now, Sita idol desecrated; BJP slams Reddy amid third incident of the type

A Goddess Sita idol was found broken in the Sitaram Temple near Pandit Nehru Busstop in Vijayawada, on 3 January, following which BJP national secretary Sunil Deodhar in charge of Andhra Pradesh affairs slammed Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and said, “despite yesterday’s drama by YSRCP party and TDP leaders, attacks on temples continue.” Pointing towards a pair of previous incidents of diety idol desecration, Deodhar questioned Chief Minister Reddy as to why is it happening only with Hindus. He said, “size/type/age of idol is immaterial.”

Hitting out at the Chief Minister, BJP’s Sunil Deodhar said, “Enough is enough. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, shouldn’t your silence and inaction be considered as hidden support to the miscreants? Are you taking Hindu sentiments for a ride? Ironically, all Hindu leaders of YCP too are silent. Aren’t they aware that people won’t spare them?”

In a stinging attack on the government in the context of the desecration of temples and idols in the state, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president and former Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu on 2 January said that Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was a betrayer of Hindus. Demanding an explanation from Reddy and a CBI probe, the former chief minister asked why his successor did not visit the temple till now as a mark of solidarity while also pointing out that such religious intolerance had increased in Andhra Pradesh under YSRCP government.

made the comments during his visit to the Ramateertham temple. He alleged that not a single accused had been arrested so far because Chief Minister Reddy, a Christian, had a soft corner for the vandals who were behind the act of desecration.

said that Reddy, a Christian, would be wrong to presume that he could use his power to convert Hindus. If people in power resort to religious conversions, it amounts to betrayal. One should not show such religious intolerance, Naidu said.

A 400-year-old idol of Lord Rama at the Sri Rama Swamy Devasthanam in Vizianagaram district and Lord Subrahmanya Swamy’s idol in Lord Vigneshwara temple of Rajahmundry district were found in a desecrated condition in the last few days, before the Sita idol.
