We have heard about the story of Telangana man Bussa Krishna who worships photo of Donald Trump every day. For him, US President Donald Trump is no less than a god. The 31-year-old Bussa Krishna, who is a farmer from the remote Konne village in Telangana’s Jangaon district has placed a candid photograph of Trump in his puja room and worships it daily along with other Hindu gods.
He also offers vermillion, turmeric, flowers and at the end of his prayer, he “aarti” to the photograph. However, the idea of worshipping the US president struck him after Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a software engineer from the state, was murdered by a US Navy veteran in an ‘alleged act of hate crime’.
Meanwhile, a farmer from Erakudi village in Tamil Nadu’s Trichy district built a ‘NaMo Temple’ which is dedicated to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The ‘temple’ was built by 50-year-old Sankar on his farm. It measures 8×8 feet and has an ‘idol’ of the Narendra Modi.
Sankar said that it took over eight months to complete the overall construction of the temple as it cost him Rs 1.2 lakhs. After the ‘temple’ was inaugurated last week, Sankar has been lighting the traditional lamps on both sides of PM Modi’s bust and doing daily ‘aarti’ to Narendra Modi whom he calls ‘Ayya’
“The work to build a temple for ayya (a Tamil word equivalent to sir in English and it refers to PM Modi here) began about eight months back. I could not complete it immediately due to constraints and the temple was inaugurated last week,” Sankar was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.
There is a specific reason behind Tamil Nadu farmer dedicating the temple to the Indian PM. Sankar said that he was totally impressed by the works of the Indian PM and has been a beneficiary of many schemes launched by PM Modi.
“I received Rs 2,000 (Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi) scheme for farmers, gas (Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana) and toilet (Individual Household Latrine Scheme) facilities,” he said.
The farmer added one more reason that his daughter could not get an admission in a Medical College despite scoring good marks in Higher Secondary exam, due to the high fees.
