Tirupati: The TTD has requested the state endowments department to take back Gandi temple into its administrative fold immediately following the suspension of the GO (No. 347 dated July 31) by the AP high court.

TTD JEO P Basant Kumar shot off a letter to the endowments commissioner on Thursday, requesting him to take the necessary steps to maintain status quo as per the court orders.

On August 28, TTD officials had to return empty-handed from the sri Veeranjaneya Swamy temple in Chakrayapet mandal of Kadapa district, where they had gone to take administrative control of the temple after the high court suspended the GO following a writ petition filed by P naveen Kumar Reddy. Following the stay order, the petitioner addressed a letter to TTD, stating that he will file a contempt case before the high court if the temple was not returned to the endowments department.

“In view of the above, it is requested to complete the process and formalities of taking over the temple from TTD immediately in view of the orders of the high court to avoid consequences of any contempt petition in the matter,” the TTD letter stated.
