Kankanam issue - TTD Chairman Bapiraju kicks off controversy

September 21, 2012 - Tirupati

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam Chairman K Bapiraju kicked off a row for wearing 'Kankanam' (a holy tie on the hand) for the Brahmotsavams against the normal practice.

According to the usual practice, the Kankanams are tied to the Executive Officer who will preside over the spiritual conduct of the daily rituals and sevas in the temple of Lord Venkateswara during the time of Brahmotsavams and major events as in charge of the head of the religious institutions.

Bapiraju ruled out any misunderstanding with the Executive Officer LV Subramanyam and said that the media has blown the issue out of proportion.
