The News Minute | December 13, 2014 | 8:55 am IST A letter from the office of the President of India has been sent to AP chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, recommending a name to be nominated for the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam Board. It seems like the lobbying for a post in the TTD board has reached its peak with the President recommending a Hindi lecturer from Tirupati called Brahma Chary, a report in the Deccan Chronicle adds. Naidu is already under a lot of pressure after increasing demands from its ally, the BJP to represent Gujarat and Maharashtra in the board. Naidu also has to accommodate the new state of Telangana apart from the already existing representation of Tamil Nadu. According to the report, the post for the TTD chairman is being contended between leaders like MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, former MLA Chadalawada Krishna Murthy and Gali Muddukrishnama. The number of member in the TTD board were increased from 15 to 18 recently after the AP Assembly amended the AP Charitable and Hindu Religious Institutions and Endowment Acts Read: Nita Ambani to be in TTD board?
