Good news for journalists of Telugu states who have been struggling to arrange darshan of Lord Venkateshwara of Tirumala for their management bosses but they, themselves, are not able to get proper darshan.
If the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams trust board being constituted by the YSR Congress party government headed by Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy gives its approval, all the accredited journalists will be treated on par with VIPs at Tirumala in having break darshan of Lord.
Senior YSR Congress party leader Y V Subba Reddy, who took charge as TTD trust board chairman on Saturday, assured that all accredited journalists will get VIP break darshan in Tirumala.
He was reacting to a representation given by journalists’ union leaders in Tirupati on Tuesday.
Subba Reddy said he would put forth the proposal for providing VIP break darshan to all accredited journalists before the trust board which would be constituted shortly.
“We shall take up the issue in the very first meeting of the board,” he said.
It was indeed a rare honour for journalists!
