After jewels, KCR set to offer ‘gold moustache’


Hyderabad: Amid scorching criticisms from the Opposition for spending, what many claim to be tax payers money, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhara Rao is all set to offer a gold moustache (bangaru meesalu) costing around Rs 75,000 at Kuravi Veerabhadra Swamy Temple.

Earlier, KCR was seen donating gold, reportedly worth crores, at the Venkateswara Swamy Temple, also known as the Tirupati temple.

 Post his flamboyant tribute at the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateshwara near Tirumala, Congress leader Madhu Yashki Goud told ANI that it was gross misuse of public money and that the Opposition should file a complaint against the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister had pledged ornaments to various gods and goddesses in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh if his mission succeeded.
