Devotees coming to Samakka Saralamma Jathara at Medaram, offer mounds of jaggery (gold) as a part of fulfilling their vows. Over a crore devotees visited the Jathara this time. But it was seen that they did not get even a small token of the jaggery as prasad. Meanwhile, the tons of jaggery that they had offered to the deities was transported right under their noses, by officials, to nobody knows where. It is said that it was sold to gudumba manufacturers.
