TIRUMALA: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu would be offering silk clothes to the Lord Venkateswara on behalf of the state government on September 26.

Chandrababu Naidu would be offering the silk clothes on the first day of Brahmotsavams.

It may be recalled here that during Brahmotsavams in 2003, Chandrababu Naidu was on his way to Tirumala to offer Silk Vastrams on Garuda Seva when naxalites triggered directional mines near Alipiri targeting the CM’s convoy. Chandrababu Naidu and his party MLAs and leaders including Bojjala Gopalakrishna Reddy and others survived the attack.

After more than 10 years, Chandrababu Naidu as the Chief Minister of the state would be offering silk vastrams to the deity. However, he is not going to visit Tirumala on the Garuda Seva day, but will offer silk clothes on the first day of the Brahmotsavams.

Ever since Alipiri bomb blast, no Chief Minister of the state offered silk vastrams on Garuda Seva day.

According to the official tour itinerary, Chandrababu Naidu will arrive at Renigunta airport by a special flight at 1 pm. From there, he will reach Tirumala by 1.50 pm.

From 7 pm to 8.45 pm, he will be participating in the Brahmotsavams. Chandrababu Naidu will proceed to the temple in a procession from Bedi Anjaneya Swamy temple to have darshan of the Lord and will offer the silk clothes. “The CM is also likely to participate in the Pedda Sesha Vahana Seva,” officials said.

Chandrababu Naidu will reach Renigunta airport and take a special aircraft at 10 pm to reach Hyderabad.
