Ashok Gajapathi Raju, one of the most trusted personality in Andhra Pradesh has conducted a press meet opposing the appointment of P. Sanchaita Gajapathi Raju as the chairperson of MANSAS Trust and a group of temples in East Godavari district. The former Union Minister P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju said that the State government had ignored all traditions, rules and regulations and supporting Sanchaita with strong intentions.
He questioned the authority of Andhra Pradesh government in making Sanchaita as the head for 104 temples in East Godavari district.
“Sanchaita has never visited any of the temples under the supervision of the MANSAS Trust since her birth” said Ashok. Sanchaita, daughter of Ananda Gajapathi Raju stayed away from the Gajapathi family with her mother when their parents got divorced. Her mother soon got married to another man and since then she never interfered in any matters of Gajapathi family. Infact she never visited even for the funerals of Gajapathi family members.
