Each cottage unit will come up in about 1,000 to 1,300 square yards and will cost Rs 2 crore per unit, the Chief Minister said, adding that at least 40 to 50 donors have already come forward to make donations for the construction of these cottages. Addressing the media, the Chief Minister said the YTDA has also been asked to provide free bus rides for pilgrims from the foothills to the temple for which a bus stand atop the hill would be constructed. This will be in addition to the TSRTC bus stand being constructed at the foothills. “I spoke with TSRTC officials and they said the financial requirement was over Rs 6 crore which the government will release immediately,” he said.

With thousands of people expected to participate in the rituals that precede the inauguration, all the final works have to be completed as per the schedule and this task will be monitored by Endowments Minister A Indrakaran Reddy and Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy, he said. The Chief Minister said apart from Swamy Pushkarni (temple tank) that would be utilised only for Abhishekham of the Lord, and two structures including the Executive Officer’s office, no other structure will be permitted atop the hill. To ensure continuous supply of Godavari water to the temple, the Basava reservoir, was being constructed in Yadadri Bhongir and the works are in advanced stages, he informed. During his over six-hour long inspection, the Chief Minister inspected all facilities and infrastructure including escalators, ‘Shivalayam’, ‘Vishnu Pushkarni’, Lord Anjaneya temple works, gold plating of temple main doors, sculpture, viewpoint arrangements.

In the ‘Alwar mandapam’, the Chief Minister closely observed each sculpture and inspected the site for installing the ‘Dwajasthambham’. Temple Stapathi Anand Sai briefed about all the works and arrangements to the Chief Minister and he, in turn, made a few instructions on the final works currently under progress at the temple. The Chief Minister also inspected Gandi Cheruvu, Pushkarni, Kalyana Katta, Deeksha Parula mandapam, Satyanarayana Swamy Vratha mandapam downhill.

Allotment of plots
Responding positively to the temple priests, employees and journalists request to sanction house sites, the Chief Minister immediately instructed Energy Minister Jagadish Reddy, Collector Pamela Satpathy to allot plots for priests and temple employees as the decision to allot plots to them was already taken. He also said Yadadri Journalists Colony would be developed and asked the journalists to discuss the issue with Energy Minister. Similarly, the Chief Minister also instructed the officials to allot 1,000 square feet shops free of cost near the Kalyana Katta Complex to all those who had to vacate their shops for the development of the Ring Road. “There should be a complete ban on consumption of liquor and smoking on the temple city premises. Only vegetarian food should be permitted here to maintain the temple’s sanctity,” Chandrashekhar Rao directed the officials.

International Convention Centre near Basavapur reservoir: CM KCR

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said an international convention centre equipped with musical water fountains and parks would come up near Nrusimha Sagar or Basavapur reservoir in Yadadri Bhongir district.

Apart from 200 acres of government land, another 250 acres will be acquired and the entire land will be handed over to Telangana State Tourism Development Corporation for developing the convention centre, he said.

Keeping in view the rapid development of Yadadri in the future, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) will be entrusted with the task of setting up STPs, underground drainage and storm water drain network. Estimates for taking up this special project will be prepared by HMWSSB at the earliest, he informed.

The Chief Minister further said Sri Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swamy had installed a huge statue of Sri Ramanuja Swamy, also known as Samatha Murthy, at Divya Saketham in Muchintal.
Apart from the Samatha Murthy, 108 popular Vaishnava temples were also being constructed at Divya Saketham. Sri Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar Swamy was also performing Maha Sudershana Homams at the venue, he said.

“As it will be difficult to perform Maha Sudershana Homam involving many ritviks simultaneously at the two venues, the Yadadri Maha Kumbha Samprokshana was fixed for March 28 next,” said Chandrashekhar Rao.
