Tirumala JEO Sri KS Sreenivasa Raju on Tuesday lauded the HoDs and employees of various departments who have worked day and night to provide best services to the pilgrims who visited Tirumala during the summer vacation. Addressing the HoDs during the Monday review meeting held at Annamaiah Bhavan in Tirumala, the JEO appreciated the team work of each department during the summer season.
“With the instructions of TTD EO Sri Anil Kumar Singhal we have provided best service to the pilgrims during summer season. Though the rush continued following the holidays, all the departments exhibited good spirit. I wish you all to continue the same spree in future too. As the pilgrim rush is increasing year after year, there is need to better our efficiency levels too and it is a never ending process”, he added.
Later he said, ‘We have taken some decisions for the summer, including cancelled VIP morning break darshan tickets to VIPs, and officers and all other officials and political fraternity except protocol VIPs to tackle the summer rush. With an aim to provide darshan to pilgrims on the same day itself without much waiting we arranged new queue system. With this pilgrims had darshan of the lord without any hussle.
The JEO also appreciated the co-ordination between TTD vigilance and police in providing security arrangements and also the effective services of Srivari Sevakulu, scouts and guides in providing annaprasadams, water, pilgrim crowd management in queue lines, compartments, etc. during the summer season.
