By A Staff Reporter: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has declared his intentions to initiate reforms at Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD), alleging commercialization and mismanagement under the previous state government. Addressing concerns, CM Naidu emphasized the need for quality prasadam, affordable rates, and the prevention of ticket black market activities at the revered religious site.

"They (former state government) commercialized Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD). Prasadam should be of good quality, rates shouldn't be increased and tickets for 'Darshan' should not be sold in the black market," stated CM Naidu, highlighting his commitment to restoring the sanctity and integrity of TTD operations.

Expressing dismay over the alleged transformation of TTD into a hub for undesirable activities, CM Naidu vowed to cleanse the religious site of such influences. "They turned this religious place into the center of marijuana, liquor, and non-vegetarian food. Cleansing will start from TTD," he declared, signaling a comprehensive overhaul of TTD's management and practices.
