Tirupati: Putta Sudhakar Yadav yesterday resigned from the post of Chairman of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Board. TTD administers the Lord Venkateswara temple on Tirumala.
The previous Telugu Desam Party had appointed Yadav, from Kadapa district, along with 17 other board members in April last year. According to media reports, Yadav had declined to step down from the post earlier this month after the Jagan Mohan Reddy led YSR Congress came to power in Andhra Pradesh.
However, retracting from his decision, he sent his resignation letter to the TTD Executive Officer Anil Kumar Singhal yesterday evening. The reason given is said to be personal reasons.
