TTD Cancels Controversial Sampdraya Bhojanam:- After the YSRCP government took charge in Andhra Pradesh, several controversial decisions are made in Tirumala. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) came up with a new plan to provide healthy food to the pilgrims visiting Tirumala and it is named Sampdraya Bhojanam. The traditional meal will be made using organic ingredients. The eight-day trial run commenced at Annamayya Bhavan on Thursday and it consisted of 14 dishes. But TTD is criticized as they wanted to charge the food from the pilgrims. The TTD has been offering free food for the pilgrims from the past few years as crores are donated for the food scheme.
TTD is badly criticized across the circles of social media for initiating a plan to charge from the customers when the free food scheme is happening without any jolts. TTD Chairman YV Subba Reddy announced that Sampdraya Bhojanam is now kept on hold. He said that the officials met and discussed about the new food scheme. The entire board members voted for the free food scheme which is served as the prasadam from god from the past few years. Social media erupted with fire against the government of Andhra Pradesh. YV Subba Reddy clarified that the free food scheme will continue in Tirumala without any delay.
