Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu may soon have a temple dedicated to him, as the transgender community is mulling building one for him for setting up of the Hijra Welfare Board.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, P Vijayakumar, founder of the Samatha Hijra Hakkula Aikya Porata Vedika, said that the temple would host a silver statue weighing five kg.
The statue is reportedly going to be installed in Transgenders Colony in Kurnool district’s Nandyal town.
Stating that no government had paid attention to the welfare of transgender persons since Independence, Vijayakumar said that he was willing to sell land that he owned, to ensure that the temple was built.
It is reportedly going to be built at a cost of Rs 10 lakh.
