Chandrasekhar Rao, his family and ministers will travel to the hill shrine to fulfil a vow Rao had taken during campaigning for the creation of a separate Telangana.

Unfazed by criticism over his massive donations to temples apparently using taxpayers' money, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao Wednesday offered gold ornaments - worth Rs 5.6 crore - at the famous Lord Venkateshwara Temple in Tirupati.

This offering was just another part of KCR's promise during the Telangana agitation, to make offerings to the Gods if statehood was granted.

Officials said he will present a solid gold ornament to Lord Balaji and a nose-stud to Goddess Padmavati, at temples built in their honour in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh.

In an extreme generosity with the taxpayers' money, the CM donated gold ornaments worth Rs 5.5 crore from the Common Good Fund of the Endowments Department of the Government of Telangana, a fund earmarked for the renovation of dilapidated temples, to Tirupati temple that earned Rs 2,600 crore revenue previous year alone and is one of the richest temple in the world. Interacting with media after the darshan, his first after being sworn-in as the chief minister, said the temple authorities arranged a comfortable darshan.

The Chief Minister, accompanied by his wife Shobha and daughter Kavitha along with their families arrived by a special chartered flight from Begumpet Airport.

The opposition has criticised the CM for spending such an exorbitant amount, with many questioning if it was right to spend the public's money for a personal vow. He will also offer a moustache of pure gold to the Veerabhadraswamy temple at Kuravi.

KCR will receive darshan at the temple early on Wednesday, when he will also present a Saligrama Haram (lotus model golden necklace), weighing about 14.900 kg and a five-row Kante (carcanet) weighing 4.650 kg.
