TTD EO INSPECTS BOONDI POTU IN TIRUMALA
TIRUMALA, JULY 3: TTD EO Sri MG Gopal on Thursday visited Boondi Potu where the most sought after laddu prasadams are being prepared in this special kitchen located inside the Tirumala shirne.
As a part of this inspection, TTD EO examined how the laddus are prepared in the kitchen and also inspected the gas connections etc.
Later speaking to media persons outside the temple, he said, TTD has decided to replace the existing doors in the potu with emergency glass exit doors. “Usually while preparing prasadams, large quantities of ghee is used. This is often resulting in the fire accidents. Some times, the potu workers have little scope even to escape. So we have decided to replace the existing doors with emergency glass exits”, he added.
CVSO Sri G Srinivas, Additional CVSO Sri Siva Kumar Reddy, SE II Sri Ramesh Reddy, temple deputy EO Sri Ramana, Potu peishkar Sri Kesava Raju and other officials were also present.
