Tirumala, 5 Feb. 21: Devotees pour in appreciation on TTD for having opened Vaikuntha Dwaram for ten days in Tirumala temple and facilitating lakhs of pilgrims to have Dwara Darshanam of Lord. 


During the monthly Dial your EO programme held at the Conference Hall of TTD Administrative Building in Tirupati on Friday, TTD EO Dr KS Jawahar Reddy flooded with calls from various pilgrim callers appreciating the historical decision of TTD which facilitated darshan to about 4.26lakh pilgrims. The EO attended to 35 pilgrim callers during the live phone in programme which was telecasted live on SVBC between 9am and 10am.


Pilgrim callers, Sri Raju from Chittoor, Sri Koteswara Rao from Rapur sought EO to allow the pilgrims for Theertha Utsvams. Replying to them, EO said, as the COVID 19 restrictions on water bodies by Central and State governments are still continuing, TTD at present not allowing the devotees for theertha mahotsavams. Once the things turn to normalcy, we will allow, he added.


Smt Gitakumari from West Godavari, Smt Radhika from Naidupeta, Sri Appa Rao from Visakhapatnam also lauded the spiritual programmes being telecasted live on SVBC by TTD while Smt Srilatha from Hyderabad sought EO to telecast a documentary on 108 Sri Vaishnava Divya Desams on SVBC. On the other hand Sri Srinivasa Reddy from Nellore said, TTD should take a decision on the advertisements telecasted on SVBC as they are obstructing continuity in dharmic programmes. Answering the caller, EO said, TTD has already taken a decision to stall the commercial ads in SVBC after March this year.


The other queries included to arrest water wastage in Tirumala, allotment of rest houses in Padmavathi area even to common pilgrims, construction of temple in SC colony, Tilakadharana to employees of TTD, playing devotional songs during the early hours in SVBC etc. Responding to all the callers, the EO said, appropriate measures will be taken to address the issues.
