KARIMNAGAR : Yadagirigutta’s Lakshminarasimha Swamy was awarded His share of development and also Lingamanthula Swamy of Peddagattu temple in Nalgonda, but it seems Raja Rajeshwara Swamy, popularly known as Lord Vemulawada Rajanna at Vemulawada has to wait longer to receive the attention of chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao.

Rao has been announcing plans for the development of famous temples such as Yadagirigutta’s temple and Peddagattu’s Lingamanthula Swamy Temple, but Vemulawada’s Rajanna temple is yet to get an announcement regarding its facelift. Seven months have passed since the new government has taken charge, but not even a single minister has visited the temple so far.

Vemulawada temple, also known as ‘Dakshn Kashi’, is one of the highest revenue generating temples in Telangana, with collections over `65 crore yearly through various Arjita sevas.

Sources said, The chief minister visited Yadagirigutta temple twice and said `100 crore has been allocated in the budget for upgrading the facilities, and another `750 crore proposal was forwarded by the district administration to develop the temple on par with Tirumala. But, nothing has been done for Vemulawada temple so far.
