He said, the development of the state has seen a decline in the last five years and there is every need to revamp the structure for which he sought the blessings of Sri Venkateswara. “I want to commence my activity starting with Tirumala by protecting its sanctity. Aiming at making Tirumala, a must-visit place of pilgrimage for every Hindu devotee during his lifetime. Tirumala should echo with the divine chants of Govinda Namas alone. I prayed to Lord Venkateswara to bless with enough strength to achieve all these goals”, he reiterated.
