Ex-Board members of TTD should follow the rule for darshan of Srivaru

TIRUMALA, MARCH 11, 2024: TTD Chairman Bhumana Karunakar Reddy said that the board has given opportunity to the former members of the TTD Board to have darshan of Srivaru with their family members (wife, children, mother and father alone) only for a few times in a year.
