Is the holy temple town of Tirumala full of sex workers? Yes says senior IAs officer Chandravadan. He is also the director of the state Aids Control Society. He made this startling comment the other day.
His comments however have irked the chief minster and also the TTD executive officer K Ramanachary. The TTD EO immediately rushed to Chandravadan who was staying at the Padmavathi guest house and expressed his displeasure.
Chandravadan later said that he has been misquoted by the media! The statistics that he mentioned were from the result of a survey conducted by a private organization. They are by no means statistics released by the government. Even the higher officials and minister are reported to have pulled up Chandravadan for his remarks.
