During the review meeting with the HODs took place at Annamaiah Bhavan in Tirumala on Monday. The JEO directed the various heads including Annaprasadam, Temple, Vigilance, Health, PR, SVBC, Garden, Engineering and Forest departments to make elaborate arrangements for this one day festival.
Speaking to media later, he said that VIP break, all arjitha sevas and privileged darshans including aged and physically handicapped, parents with infants have been cancelled following Radhasapthami on February 3.
The JEO said the engineering officials have made special barricading and other necessary arrangements in the galleries in view of the heavy pilgrim rush which is expected for this one day mega event of Lord Venkateswara.
“The vigilance sleuths along with police are making elaborate security arrangements to see that no untoward incident takes place during the time of procession of vahanams as well during Chakrasnanam in Swamy Pushkarini.
