daily earners. TTD is already supplying 50,000 food packets twice a
day to these people. Taking a step ahead, TTD has started addressing
the needs of stray animals also. TTD took stock of the situation to
resolve the transportation hassles affecting the fodder supplies for
livestock in the SV Goshala.

animals as well:

streets of Tirupati, Tiruchanoor and other locations like Ayodhya
swami ashram, Nava Jeevan ashram, Radha Govinda Ashram etc. Go Shala
