CROSS MARK IS NOT A RELIGIOUS SIGN-TTD CE
TIRUMALA, FEB 26: The cross mark alleged as a sign evangelical propaganda which appeared in front of nada neerajana Mandapam in Tirumala on Wednesday evening, is not a religious mark but a part civil engineering activity said, the Chief Engineer of TTD Sri Chandrasekhar Reddy.
Giving clarification on the sign which was reported by a section of media as evangelical propaganda, the CE ruled out that the allegations are baseless. “While planning a construction or a building, usually in civil engineering we go for “central line system” where in reference points are drawn from four corners. First we work out our plan on a paper and then mark on the land planned for construction with the help of a thread and the mark will be usually in “plus” symbol. So the one which was drawn in front of Nada Neerajana Mandapam is also a part of our developmental work and it is not a religious symbol”, he clarified.
EE I Sri Krishna Reddy was also present.
