A 33-year-old man, Bussa Krishna from Telangana, India who went viral after turning his puja room into a temple for US President, Donald Trump has died while fasting for him to recover from Coronavirus. TheHill reports that Bussa who was concerned about the US President’s health condition following his COVID-19 infection, died of cardiac arrest on Sunday October 11,2020.
According to reports, the family of the deceased confirmed that he suffered from depression upon learning that Donald Trump and wife had contracted COVID-19. He therefore took to fasting but unfortunately collapsed while having tea at his relative’s residence.
It is said that Krishna started worshipping the US president after Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a indian software engineer was killed by a US navy veteran in an alleged act of hate crime in February, 2020. He went on to build a six-feet statue of the US President which he worshipped. Krishna also kept a fast every Friday to pray for long life for Donald Trump.
