Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Tuesday performed ‘Tulabharam’ at the temple of Lord Venkateswara and offered 78kg of rice equivalent to his weight.

After darshan, Mr. Reddy also formally launched the Kannada and Hindi versions of Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel (SVBC) in the presence of the chief pontiff of Mantralaya Sri Raghavendra swamy Mutt Sri Subudendra Thirtha Swamy.

He also inaugurated the new Boondi making kitchen built at a cost of ₹12 crore. The main intention behind constructing the new kitchen with over 40 Thermic Fluid Stoves (flame less) was to enhance the laddu production to six lakh laddus a day and overcome various health hazards being faced by the potu workers. Managing Director of India Cements N. Srinivasan who volunteered to bear the entire cost of the project was also present. Interestingly Mr. Reddy also tried his hands in the making of boondi at one of the giant stoves.
