Explanation

Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy appointed his uncle and senior politician YV Subba Reddy as the Chairman of Tirumala Tirupati in 2019. This drew flak on social media mentioning allegedly that YV Subba Reddy is a Christian and cannot be the Chairman of a Hindu temple. Following this, YV Subba Reddy clarified that his religion is Hindu and will remain the same forever and his wife can be seen giving speech on Omkaram and Dhyanam here. Since YV Subba Reddy’s wife, Yerram Swarnalatha Reddy is the sister of YS Vijayamma (mother of CM Jagan Mohan Reddy) who practices Christianity post her marriage, it was claimed that even YV Subba Reddy’s family practices Christianity.

The viral image shows YV Subba Reddy’s wife holding a bible, where Vijayamma is seen hugging her son and CM Jagan Mohan Reddy, YV Subba Reddy is seen standing behind them. This image is doing the rounds on the internet time and again since 2020. Some of the posts with the viral image can be seen here, here and here.

What is the truth?

When reverse searching the viral image, it is found that it was featured in the ‘Great Andhra’ article dated 8, July 2020 with the title ‘Jagan pays tributes to father YSR, releases mother’s book’.

When searching with the relevant keywords from the above-said article, a Youtube video from the channel ‘TV9 Telugu Live’ dated 8, July 2020 titled ‘CM Jagan, Vijayamma launches ‘Naalo Naatho…YSR’ book @ Idupulapaya – TV9’ is found. At 0.22 minutes, the book can be seen handed over to YV Subba Reddy’s wife from Vijayamma.

The same visuals of the Bible being handed over from the hands of Vijayamma to YV Subba Reddy’s wife can be seen at 2.02 minutes of the video published by Sakshi TV with the title ‘CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy Launched YSR biography penned by YS Vijayamma | Naalo.. Naatho… YSR |’ on 8, July 2020.

It can be seen that the book was in the hands of Vijayamma since the start and was handed over to Yerram Swarnalatha Reddy, YV Subba Reddy’s wife later as Vijayamma needed to hold the book that they were releasing.

Conclusion

It is found that the photo taken at the instance when YV Subba Reddy’s wife is holding the bible is shared relating the religion of YV Subba Reddy and his post of TTD Chairmanship. But it is evident that the book was handed over by Vijayamma.
