The Central Information Commission (CIC) questioned the PMO, Archaeological Survey of India, Union Culture Ministry and Tirumala Tirupati Devastahnam (TTD) over the whereabouts of the ornaments donated by 16th century king Sri Krishna Devaraya to Lord Venkateshwara in Tirupati.
Sridhar Acharyulu, the Information Commissioner also directed the TTD to act as per the norms set up by the Right to Information Act, 2005 and provide all the transparency in their actions. The directions were given based on the enquiry done over an appeal made by temple protection activist B Ayyangar. Ayyangar had objected to unlawful demolition of ‘Veyyi Kalla Mandapam’ located in front of the main entrance in 2003.
The CIC observing that TTD temple was a national and cultural heritage chided the TTD board for not responding to any RTI queries without any official orders or instructions. The TTD board had come under a lot of criticism and scrutiny over the last few days and NewsSting had reported earlier last week that a key decision related to TTD coming under RTI will be made soon.
