    What is the source of money for such offerings? Income tax Department doesn't have any plans to raid? Oh... It has to get its orders from Iyer Bureau(IB).lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Whatever, Telengana supporters have been fooled that it was because of them that the state was formed. But Chandrasekhar proves that it is because of the goddess.

            KCR has doomed Telangana because it is land locked with no sea coast. KCR politics is making Telangana like Bihar. When there are slums and poverty in Telangana, how can Telangana CM use public money for gold ornaments ?

              God in Geeta says that the best way to please me is to offer with devotion patram(leave)or pushpam (flower) or thoyam (water) the light of this how far it is justified to spend tax payers money worth 3.70 crores to make a golden crown and offer it to Godess?

                He seems to be the biggest currently in India. Goddess needs golden crown???? There is no God for Hindus. They are still primitives and should be living in Jungles. Alas they are primitives in modern day clothes.

                    What a waste of money! The goddess does not need this. The interest accruing out of the money (if invested) could have been distributed to poor students for their studies. Vulgar display and waste of taxpayers' money.
