BJP MPs indirect punch to Pawan Kalyan?

BJP MP Subramanian Swamy may just have given an indirect punch to Pawan Kalyan and fellow BJP MP Tejasvi Surya. It pertains to the now-suspended proposal to dispose off 50 of TTD's properties. Before the controversial decision was stalled by the Jaganmohan Reddy government, Tejasvi Surya on Monday requested Pawan Kalyan and the Andhra Pradesh unit of the BJP to "fight this issue until the government reverses its stand." He added that, in the longterm, "we must get temples out of state control."

The Jana Sena supremo, quoting Surya's tweet, stated that the sale of TTD's properties will "set a bad precedent for other temple properties in the country."

Subramanian Swamy, known for often putting his party in an embarrassing position, took to Twitter and reminded the Pawan-Surya duo of what the BJP government has been doing in Uttarakhand against its stated position on temples. "What about Uttarakhand BJP government taking over all 53 temples including the Chaar Dhaams, and the CM appointing himself as the Chairman of the Devasthan Boards? How can we in BJP answer that?" Swamy tweeted.

This is as much a jibe at Pawan Kalyan as it is at Surya and the BJP.
