It created quite a stir when TDP appointed its MLA Vangalapudi Anitha who is a Christian by religion as a member of the Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam (TTD) board.

Recently TDP withdrew MLA Anitha from the TTD board after a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed by protesters in the Hyderabad High Court. The petitioners created expressed their disappointment in appointing a Christian in the board of TTD.

Immediately, Ms.Anitha wrote a letter to Chandra Babu requesting him to cancel her membership from the TTD board and thanked him for the opportunity. The action was instantly taken and her membership was cancelled.
