Yes, Deity and His lost Rights will be the Election issue at Tirupathi.

Munivahana Aditya Parasri wrote a letter to all Candidates and Devout Hindus on 28 March...

My Tiruppan Alwar community is indebted to Lord Shri Padmanabha Swamy Deity. For people like us deprived of temple entry for thousands of years, it was Lord Shri Padmanabha Swamy Ruler Deity who issued historic Temple Entry Proclamation in 1936 and provided entry and equal darshan in 1256 temples in a single stroke...Through the grace of Shri Padmanabha Swamy Deity this formed the basis for Art 25 Constitutional Right to temple entry for all of us and it is blessings of Lord Shri Padmanabha Swamy Deity that we enjoy this right today.

We are indebted to Lord Chilkur Balaji Deity whose blessings made His Archaka reenact a 2700 year old Munivahana Seva by lifting a devotee representing the Tiruppan Alwar community on his Shoulders and taking into Temple.

On 26th February 2021, we had represented to His Excellency Hon'ble President to resolve the Art 363 Hindu Deity Rights dispute of Lord Chilkur Balaji on behalf of Lord Shri Padmanabha Swamy Ruler Deity, Lord Ayyappa Deity and all Hindu Deities expeditiously for the well-being of the Nation.

At a time when there is a serious threat of a second Covid wave, it is important as represented by the Organization of Shebaits (Founders) representing Hindu Deities and People for Dharma that we resolve the dispute as per Dharma and secure protection of Dharma crucial for victory over Covid. Your Excellency is aware that Travancore was miraculously protected by Lord Shri Padmanabha Swamy Deity during 1918 pandemic . We request your Excellency to use your Constitutional powers to ensure justice is done without any delay for the well-being of the Nation OM VASHAT KARAYA NAMAHA

It is unfortunate that the dharmic efforts of His Excellency Hon'ble President to resolve the matter is delayed due to lack of timely advice from the Dept of Legal Affairs and as we had warned the Nation is now facing a serious health crisis in the form of the second Covid wave.

We now appeal to Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji to ensure no further delay in providing suitable advice from Cabinet to His Excellency Hon'ble President which will also fulfill his own promise to the family members of Lord Ayyappa in the land of Shri Padmanabha Swamy on April 18, 2019 which secured the second term.

We also appeal to Smt Ratna Prabha garu who is the BJP candidate for Tirupathi by-elections chosen to represent Lord Balaji at Tirumala from our community to take up the matter of implementation of April 18th 2019 promise with Hon'ble Prime Minister and settle the Hindu Deity Rights dispute expeditiously for the well-being of the Nation.

We also appeal to all other candidates from various political parties from our Community to ensure fulfillment of the promise made to Hindu Deities by the Hon'ble Prime Minister on behalf of the Nation before April 17, 2021, the polling day which marks the completion of 2 years since the promise.
