Guntur (Andhra Pradesh), March 3 : A controversy is brewing in Andhra Pradesh with the BJP objecting to the alleged illegal erection of a cross on a hillock considered holy by the Hindus in Guntur district.
BJP national secretary and the party’s Andhra Pradesh co-incharge Sunil Deodhar claimed that the hillock was encroached.
“See the huge illegal cross at Edlapadu where once the footprints of Sita Maa existed. Carving of Lord Narasimha exists at the back. In Guntur district, Christian mafias have created havoc. Andhra Pradesh BJP and friends of RSS protested against this but the administration tacitly supported the move,” claimed Deodhar.
He also released a video alleging that the state government is supporting corruption, mafia, goondaism and encroachment of land by churches.
The BJP leader claimed that the conversion mafia is creating havoc ever since Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy came to power.
He claimed that the hillock had Sita’s footprints where weddings used to be conducted.
