“I have taken a vow during the Telangana movement that I would present golden Ornaments to Sri Venkateswara Swamy and Sri Padmavathy Ammavaru if separate Telangana State becomes a reality. Due to Lord Venkateswara Swamy’s blessings we got the Telangana State. I am happy today that I have presented the Ornaments and fulfilled my vow. After the formation of Telangana State I wanted to come here and fulfill my vow. But it did not happen. As they say unless you have calling from the Lord you cannot make the visit. In my childhood, I came to Tirupati along with my uncle to have the darshan. But we could not as we heard an inauspicious news and had to cancel the visit and return. Unless you have the grace of the Lord, you cannot come here and have a darshan. I have performed the poojas with utmost devotion and to my heart’s content. I prayed to the Lord to take care of the Telangana State and bless that it should do well. I also prayed from bottom of my heart to make the two Telugu States flourish. Not only the two states, I prayed for the well being of the entire country. I thank everyone for their cooperation,” the CM said in his brief message to people at Sri Ranganayaka Swamy Mandapam.
