The senior TDP chief was expelled from the chairmanship of the temple belief boards for allegedly failing to take steps that might have prevented the destruction of the idol of Rama at Ramateertham temple
The Andhra Pradesh Excessive Court docket has put aside the removing of senior TDP chief P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju from the submit of chairman/Founder Household Member (FFM) of belief boards of three temples, primarily together with Sri Rama Swamy Devasthanam at Ramateertham in Vizianagaram district.
Mr. Raju was expelled from the chairmanship of the temple belief boards for allegedly failing to take steps that might have prevented the destruction of the idol of Rama at Ramateertham temple.
The federal government issued a memo within the first week of January eradicating Mr. Raju from the stated posts for failing to discharge his legit duties and for not addressing points associated to security of the temples.
In his petition, Mr.. Raju argued that his removing from the submit of FFM / belief board chairman of Ramateertham temple, Sri Pyditalli Ammavari Devasthanam in Vizianagaram district and Sri Mandeswara Swamy temple in East Godavari was carried out by means of a memo (as an alternative of G.O.) in blatant violation of Sec.28 (2) of AP Charitable and Hindu Spiritual Establishments and Endowments Act, 1987.
The courtroom has apparently agreed along with his fundamental competition, which was that the Commissioner of Endowments and the Govt Officers are the custodians of the temples as per Sec.29 of the above Act and never the chairpersons/FFMs.
Moreover, neither the FFMs nor the chairpersons have been held accountable in different latest circumstances of assaults on temples.
Mr. Raju questioned how may the federal government take away him from the submit of FFM/chairman of three temples for ‘an act at one temple’.
