According to purists, a married man should be accompanied by his wife in Hindu rituals. “It would bring evil upon the state’s people when husband alone participates in the temple puja when his wife is alive,” former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu …
Chandrababu Naidu said on Wednesday, while accusing Reddy of willfully hurting the Hindu devout sentiments. BJP leaders also expressed similar opinions.

Rajarathinam told police that the idols were in possession of the family since the time of his grandfather.
