The Chaudamma Yadi, a tribal deity’s temple located beside the Chaudamma Gutta temple in the suburbs of Shadnagar town, was destroyed. This caused anger and concern among the local community, and leaders of the Shadnagar BJP, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, and Hindu Vahini expressed their outrage. They visited the site to express their concerns and called on the public to take action against the destruction of temples for business activities and demanded immediate punishment for the culprits.
According to the tribals, local real estate traders were involved in the destruction of the temple. They accused unidentified people of vandalizing the temple, which they worship every day. The leaders informed the police about the demolition of the temple and submitted a written complaint. Local town CI Naveen Kumar and SI Venkateswarlu visited the site to inquire about the details.
The tribal leaders stated that ChaudammaYadi has been a place of worship for their ancestors and also alleged that an ancient temple of Venkateswara Swamy has disappeared from the area. The destruction of these temples has caused great concern among the local community, and immediate action is necessary to protect their cultural heritage.
Dr. T. Vijay Kumar warned that a Shadnagar bandh will be called soon if action is not taken against the people who demolished the temple. The BJP leaders have alleged that real estate traders are buying land in the area and demolishing ancient temples.
