Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu today visited Sammakka Saralakka and offered his prayers at Medaram in Warangal district. Deputy CM Kadiyam Srihari accompanied him here.
Minister for endowments and speaker Madhusudana Chary was also with Venkaiah.
Security was beefed up for the visit of the Vice President. He offered jaggery and floral tributes to the deities here. The flow of the pilgrims was restricted for the sake of Venkaiah. The police had a tough time in controlling the crowds.
Perhaps this is the first time that the Vice President of a country came to Sammakka Saralakka Jatara.
