In what can be a welcome decision, AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has passed orders that only Hindus will be appointed in jobs in Hindu temples. Whilst such policy is there in Tirumala where only Hindus are appointed in TTD, Jagan has decided to extend the similar policy to Hindu temples across the state.
In a GO issued by the state government, it is decided that only persons from Hindu religion are allowed to work in Hindu Temples and its departments. If there are any people from other religion working in Hindu Temples, as per the GO, such persons would be transferred to other departments. Since Jagan himself not belongs to Hindu religion and its belief system, his decision to allow only Hindus work in Hindu temples has become talking point.
This is in the wake of BJP's AP unit which has been fighting against Jagan's administration over the meted injustice to Hindus and Hindu Temples. BJP AP unit chief Kanna along with other state leaders have met Governor Biswabhusan and complained against the government's move to take the lands of Hindu temples into its control. Amidst this, Jagan's fresh move may cool AP BJP leaders.
Looks like, Jagan is trying to impress BJP leaders of the state and thus wants to be in the good books of Modi and Shah. Well, reasons apart, Jagan's decision is welcome move as it would avoid any unwanted, untoward incidents like propaganda of other religion near Hindu temples.
