The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has expressed disappointment over the Chief Minister of Hyderabad, K Chandrashekar Rao’s absence from the Kalyana Mahotsavam of Bhadradri Sita Ramachandra Swamy temple, also known as Ayodhya of South. The VHP leaders have questioned the Chief Minister’s decision to skip the centuries-old tradition and have accused him of discriminating against Hindu festivals. They have also alleged that the Chief Minister’s failure to offer silk clothes and ‘Mutyalatalambaralu’ to Lord Rama is an insult to the Hindu community.
The VHP leaders have recalled that after the formation of the state, the Chief Minister had presented ‘MutyalaTalambaralu’ and silk clothes in 2015 and 2016. They have expressed their disappointment that he has not visited Bhadrachalam yet. The VHP leaders have accused KCR of breaking a tradition introduced in the 17th century by not offering silk clothes and ‘Mutyalatalambaralu’ to Lord Rama as Chief Minister.
The VHP has urged Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to respect the traditions and sentiments of the Hindu community and attend the Kalyana Mahotsavam of Bhadradri Sita Ramachandra Swamy temple. They have also requested him to offer silk clothes and ‘Mutyalatalambaralu’ to Lord Rama as per the tradition. The VHP leaders have emphasized that it is important for the Chief Minister to uphold the values and beliefs of the Hindu community.
