Sources in the TTD said that the Board members carried out a summary inspection, adding that there were more than 1200 pieces of valuable jewellery in the shrine, all of which are listed in the register pertaining to the Lord's jewellery. The casual manner in which the inspection was conducted without verifying the register, has come in for sharp criticism from various quarters. It is a widely known fact that over the past few weeks a big debate has been raging about many of the missing items of the shrine's jewellery. The former head priest of the TTD shrine Ramana Deekshitulu went public about many issues related to the shrine including missing items of valuable jewellery.
