Tirupati: The decision to bring TTD into GST regime was flayed by the Rayalaseema Porata Samithi (RPS) convener P Naveen Kumar Reddy. He held a dharna at Alipiri Padala mandapam on Thursday by displaying placards and said that no one in the history dared enough to tax the Lord Venkateswara. It is nothing but imposing tax on the pilgrims for having a darshan of the Lord. Even the British and Muslim rulers have taxed the Lord.

Naveen wondered why the Chief Minister was silent on the issue. The TTD authorities should present the financial status before the centre so that TTD can get exemption, he stated and made an appeal to the Modi government to respect the sentiments of the people.
