Balayya offer prayers, Roja breaks 108 coconuts for 3 capitals at Durga temple

Vijayawada, October 5: TDP MLA from Hindupur and Tollywood actor Nandamuri Balakrishna visited Sri Durga Malleswara Swamy temple here on Wednesday and offered prayers to presiding deity. Temple officials offered him laddu prasadam and presented a portrait of the Goddess to MLA. 
 
Speaking on the occasion, Balakrishna conveyed Dasara festival greetings to people of Andhra Pradesh and wished that state should progress on all fronts. However, he expressed unhappiness over officials for not arranging a mike at media point.
 
During VIP break darshan, Tourism Minister Roja visited the temple and sought Goddess blessings in favour of three capitals by breaking 108 coconuts. Talking to reporters, Roja said that she prayed for happiness and prosperity of people. 
 
“I earnestly requested deity to remove all legal hurdles for setting up three capitals and development of three regions in Andhra Pradesh,” she mentioned and stated that she will visit temple once again after decentralisation of capital.
