Mr Bhaskar today reviewed arrangements of the annual brahmotsavams of Sri Govinda Raja Swamy which are scheduled to take place from June 4 to 12 with the officials.

He directed the engineering officials to set up extra lines and barricades, keeping in view the pilgrim rush.

The JEO also directed the officers concerned to negotiate with corporation, EB officials to cut off the branches of well grown trees in order to avoid obstruction during the procession of the famous Rathotsavam during the temple fete.

He instructed the health and Annaprasadam department officials to provide food and water round the clock to the pilgrims during the nine day festival.

He said since Garudaseva falls on June 8, Rathotsavam on June 11 and Chakrasnanam on June 12 asked the officials concerned to deploy enough number of scouts and guides and Srivari Sevaks for crowd management.

The JEO directed the GM Transport to operate special buses to TTD colonies for the convenience of the families of TTD staff members to take part in the annual fete.

Mr Bhasker also directed the garden and electric wings of TTD to decorate and illuminate the streets and temple premises with colourful displays.
