Garuda Varadhi is up to Alipiri. extended

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) chairman YV Subba Reddy spoke out in favor of an extension of the Garuda Varadhi flyover to Alipiri in order to cope with the increasing traffic difficulties in Tirupati.

The decision was made from the perspective of the TTD that many applications for an extension of the overpass, which is already halfway built, have been received. The proposal will be discussed in the Board of Trustees meeting scheduled on Saturday, and a decision on the preparation of cost estimates will also be made at the meeting.

The possibility of admitting more devotees to Darshan in Tirumala will also be discussed in tomorrow’s session.

Speaking to media representatives on Friday, Mr Subba Reddy said that COVID-19 is a spoilsport in the implementation of various social programs. Although the decision to reintroduce “Kalyanamastu” – a mass marriage plan – had already been made, the TTD was unable to pursue the plan when the second wave took place. The same was true of the decision to build temples in SC, ST, BC, and other rundown locations.

Mr Subba Reddy said the TTD did its part in troubled times by organizing spiritual programs for global wellbeing, including Virata Parva and Sundarakanda Parayanam.
