Both the dignitaries will offer Silk Robes and Muthyala Thalambralu to the Lord’s Kalyanam on behalf of the state government on that day, he said.

He further said that as part of his visit to Vontimitta, the chief minister will lay foundation stones for lift irrigation schemes aimed at bringing water to Vontimitta from Somasila back waters and also to the housing colony to provide residences with all required infrastructure to all the 86 oustees, who lost their houses to make way for the expansion of the temple.

Meanwhile, Congress leader C Ramachandraiah, who along with his wife came to the Vontimitta temple for darshan, expressed happiness over the government organising Srirama Navami fete in the ancient temple.

“Though Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has done nothing for Kadapa district, at least he gave it honour by deciding to conduct the Srirama Navami celebrations in Vontimitta temple of the district,” he said.

He said that the development of the temple will give scope for generation of employment. On the occasion, he also urged the government to take steps for supplying irrigation and drinking water to Vontimitta.
