Tirumala: Traditional meal program canceled : YV Subbareddy Chairman TTD
Mr. YV Subbareddy Chairman TTD said it was inappropriate to misrepresent traditional food on social media. TTD does not sell traditional meals. The chairman announced that the trial run was being halted as it was not successful.
Speaking to media outside the temple where Swami was participating in their service this morning, he said that TTD officials had introduced the traditional meal with a good intention during the absence of the TTD governing council, but in consultation with the authorities, they were suspending the traditional meal from today.
He explained that the Swami had decided to discontinue the traditional meal so that any food in Thirumala would be offered as their offering. He said that some people were spreading untruths on social media and asked the devotees to believe him.
He said that on the occasion of Krishnashtami, we are going to launch a new service in TTD and will launch Krishna’s favorite Navneeta Seva program from today.
