JEO INSPECTS “MOVABLE QUEUE LINE” IN TIRUMALA
Tirumala JEO Sri KS Sreenivasa Raju on Saturday inspected “Movable Queue” in Tirumala near Vahana Mandapam.
The new appliance will provide a temporary resting to the pilgrims who are standing in queue lines for lengthy hours when the pilgrim rush is heavy.
Meanwhile TTD is contemplating for many such devices at a cost of Rs.92lakhs especially in Divya Darshan queue lines(foot path pilgrims) in Narayanagiri Gardens when the rush is heavy. These strong iron equipment which weighs over 400 kilos has wheels with seating facility that will accommodate six members. This will be of great use for the women and aged when the pilgrim rush is more.
TTD is planning to bring up this machine for pilgrim use from the new year onwards. EE I Sri Krishna Reddy was also present.
