TTD EO INSPECTS QUEUE LINES AND COMPARTMENTS FOR ABOUT 8HRS IN TIRUMALA
TIRUMALA, JULY 1: TTD EO Sri MG Gopal on Tuesday carried out inspections at various places in Tirumala which lasted for nearly eight hours.
The inspection began with the EO personally monitoring the darshan of pilgrims inside the sanctum where the three-layer queue system was introduced in the month of May this year. The EO expressed immense satisfaction at the way the pilgrim darshan is being executed under this new queue line system. Even the pilgrims also expressed their happiness for having hassle free darshan of Lord Venkateswara.
Later the EO inspected the scanning point, before the Maha Dwaram entry and noticed that three out of four scanners are out of order. He instructed the concerned vigilance supervisor to immediately take up the repair works of the scanners immediately without any delay. EO also visited the Supadham entry point where the arjitha seva pilgrims, srivari sevakulu, NRIs, parents with infants etc. are sent for darshan. There he interacted with the pilgrims and sevakulu and learnt about their darshan timings. Later he instructed the concerned officials to allow the arjitha seva pilgrims including Dolotsavam, Arjitha Brahmotsavam, Vasanthotsavam and Sahasra Deepalankara Seva pilgrims only during the stipulated time and not before.
Moving towards Vaikuntha Queue Complex-I, the TTD EO verified the recorded data of number of pilgrims who had darshan during the week days and week ends.
