Privileged to serve Lord for two years: Subramanyam
TTD executive officer LV Subramanyam, who has been transferred to Hyderabad in the recent major reshuffle of IAS officers, has described his two-year tenure in the capacity of the TTD EO as the best memory in his 30 years of service.
Subramanyam, who has been shifted to Hyderabad as the principal secretary of medical and health department, on Friday had a darshan of Lord Venkateswara. He is likely to be relieved of his duty on Saturday before senior IAS officer MG Gopal assumes office of the TTD EO.
Speaking to the media outside the Tirumala shrine, he said that his two-year tenure as the TTD executive officer was a memorable experience for him.
“Millions of devotees seek to take a glimpse of the Lord. I feel blessed as I had got an oppurtunity to render my services to Lord Venkateswara for two years,” Subramanyam said.
I thank all pilgrims, officers and staffs of the TTD for their continous support which helped me discharge my responsiblity as the TTD EO,” he said.
Subramanyam was accorded a grand welcome with temple honours by the priests when he came to Tirumala shrine. Later, he was blessed with Vedasirvachanams at Ranganayakula mandapam. Tirumala JEO KS Sreenivasa Raju offered him laddu prasadam, silk vastram and a photograph of the Lord.
TTD CV&SO GVG Ashok Kumar, temple deputy EO C Ramana and others were also present.
