TIRUMALA: The actor-turned-politician and president of Praja Rajyam K. Chiranjeevi, who won the prestigious Tirupati Assembly seat, on Thursday offered prayers at the famous hill temple of Lord Venkateswara.
Chiranjeevi, who flew into the Tirupati town on Thursday morning straightaway proceeded to Tirumala from the Renigunta airport as part of his two-day official visit to the temple town. He offered his prayers to the presiding deity inside the main temple during the morning VIP break darshan.
The temple priests showered ‘Vedaseervachanams’ on him.
Mr. Chiranjeevi, who is on his thanksgiving mission, also paid a visit to Balaji Nagar – the residential locality at Tirumala. Thousands of local residents congregated at the Vinayaka temple in Balaji Nagar to have a close look at their matinee idol, who lustily waved to the cheering crowd. Later, winding up his maiden visit, he motored down to Tirupati to participate in the locally arranged programmes. Mr. Chiranjeevi, who will stay overnight at Tirupati, also is likely to hold meeting with the party cadres.
