The Minister’s feedback on the stolen silver lions at Kanaka Durga temple at Vijayawada and on the chariot fire at Antarvedi video show his conceitedness and lack of knowledge, he said.

The Chief Minister need to also respond to the inquire and construct the Minister tender an apology, failing which Hindu organisations would intensify their protests, he warned.
