Praja Rajyam chief and Tirupati MLA Chiranjeevi has written a letter to Chief Minister K Rosaiah, asking him to extend an invitation to US President Barack Obama, to visit the temple town of Tirupati during his visit to India in November. The letter showed that Chiranjeevi is extremely keen to meet Obama.
“Tirupati is one of the holiest places for the Hindus and the biggest Hindu temple is in Tirumala. We can use this opportunity to request Obama to include Tirupati in his itinerary,” said Chiranjeevi in the letter.
Explaining the rich heritage and culture of the Telugu speaking people and the importance of Tirupati, Chiranjeevi wrote a letter to Mr Obama as well, and has requested him to include Tirupati in his itinerary.
However, Obama hasn’t even decided about his visit to Hyderabad yet but oblivious to this, Chiranjeevi has pressured the Chief Minister to invite the US President to Tirupati. “The Government has forwarded Chiranjeevi’s request to the US President’s office,” said an official of the CM`s office.
