TTD board controversy over appointment of 50 special invitees: Union Minister Kishan Reddy impatient
I do not recommend Ravi Prasad
Union Minister Kishan Reddy on appointment as TTD special invitee
Letter to AP CM Jagan to conduct an inquiry
Controversy is erupting over the appointment of 50 special invitees to the board of the Tirumala Tirupati Devastanam (TTD) recently announced by the Andhra Pradesh government.
Hyderabad-based businessman Y Ravi Prasad has been appointed as a special guest on the recommendation of Union Minister Kishan Reddy, which went viral on social media. Responding to the matter, Kishan Reddy strongly condemned the campaign.
Kishan Reddy wrote a letter to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan stating that he had not recommended Ravi Prasad either personally or on behalf of his department.
The letter asked CM Jagan to take appropriate action against those who were personally involved in the matter and spreading false information.
Y. Ravi Prasad from Nalgonda district in Telangana settled in Hyderabad. He owns a number of businesses, including construction, real estate, trading, hotels, and restaurants. Gayatri is a director of Vaishnoi Constructions, Sri Vaishnoi projects as well as over 20 companies.
With Kishan Reddy’s latest letter, who recommended Ravi Prasad has become a hotly debated topic.
Controversy is raging over the appointment of Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra members who were given a chance on the TTD board. Srinivasan, the head of India Cements, who is facing a full trial in the Jagan piracy case, has been retained as a member of the new board.
There are cases against someone from Tamil Nadu who has been appointed as a special invitee. It is learned that there is a CBI case against a member appointed from Maharashtra.
This has led to allegations that members and special invitees were appointed without any inquiry even if the recommendations of the political parties were made.
