2,000 policemen for Vaikunda Ekadasi

Image

TIRUCHI: Restricting the number of VIP passes, improving sanitation and a possible extension of the number of days of Muthangi seva were some of the prominent issues were touched upon at a consultative meet to discuss the arrangements for the Vaikunda Ekadasi festival at the Srirangam Ranganathaswamy Temple here on Wednesday.

The festival is scheduled to commence on December 6 and culminate on December 27. A section of speakers at the meeting, including the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Rupesh Kumar Meena, emphasised the need for restricting the number of VIP passes so as to ease the congestion in and around the sanctum sanctorum on the day of Vaikunda Ekadasi.


VIP passes

Mr.Meena observed that though just about 500 persons could be accommodated more than 2,000 passes were being issued, hindering movement of devotees. Some of the public representatives suggested that the practice of issuing VIP passes be done away with entirely to check the recurrent problem.

Collector Mahesan Kasirajan, who chaired the meeting, discounted the possibility of stopping the issue of passes as many VIPs from all parts of the country visited the temple during the festival. He, however, agreed that the number of passes could be restricted after discussions with the officials. Mr.Kasirajan appealed to all sections of people and the government agencies to extend their cooperation for the smooth conduct of the festival.

C.Jayaraman, Joint Commissioner, said that the temple Trustees Board has proposed to create additional space for accommodating persons holding passes this year. Every year, the temple administration came under severe pressure from various sections of people and government agencies seeking passes. About 2,500 square feet of space could be created by opening up the Vagana Mandapam. This apart, pass holders could also be allowed around the Golden Vimana. About 1,000 persons could be accommodated at these places and pleaded with the police officials to allow an increase in the number of passes to be issued.

Mr.Meena also disclosed that about 2,000 policemen would be deployed for security in the temple on the festival day. Corporation Commissioner T.T.Balsamy said 50 per cent of the nearly 1,300 sanitary workers in the city would be deployed in Srirangam for maintaining sanitation during the festival period. This apart, about 200 temporary sanitary workers would be on duty. Adequate drinking water supply, street lighting and temporary toilets would be provided, Corporation Health Officer K.C.Cheran said.

P.K.Thiyagarajan, chairman, Board of Trustees, said the board was considering the feasibility of extending the number of days of the Muthangi Seva, to enable more devotees to have darshan, thereby easing the rush.

Additional buses

Health department officials said apart from a camp hospital, two medical teams would be available inside the temple. A Transport Corporation official said about 40 additional buses would be operated for running specials during the festival. Railways would supply drinking water in Srirangam Station.

Plying of vehicles through Srirangam Rajagopuram banned

CHENNAI: Banning of vehicular movement through the Rajagopuram of the Sri Ranganathaswami Temple at Srirangam is among the decisions taken by the official authorities on Saturday as part of the measures to protect the structure. Bursting of crackers and lighting fireworks around the Rajagopuram and the temple will also not be permitted.

It was decided that these and other measures would be implemented within a fortnight. A technical team which surveyed the Rajagopuram on June 21 had submitted a preliminary report stating that the structure was safe and its stability was good and there need be no fear about safety.

Following this, a meeting was held by Chief Secretary K.S.Sripathi on Friday. Plugging small cracks using a mixture other than cement and epoxy, not permitting new construction, pile foundation or borewell within 40 metres from the temple and removal of encroachments around the temple were the other measures. Yet another decision was to study the base of the Rajagopuram using the Non-Penetration Radar jointly with the IIT, according to an official press release.

Pathway in Srirangam soon

Image

TIRUCHI: Construction of a sheltered pathway and laying of stone pavements inside the Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple would be completed soon.

The Temple Trust has taken up the project to erect the sheltered pathway and stone pavements from the Thousand Pillar Mandapam to Udayavar Sannidhi inside the temple complex at an estimated cost of Rs.14 lakh.

Devotees, particularly senior citizens, find it difficult to traverse this open stretch especially during summer as they to walk over hot sand. The erection of the sheltered pathway would greatly benefit devotees.

The pathway is being provided with a polycarbonate sheet roof, said C.Jayaram, Joint Commissioner of the temple. While the work on erecting the sheltered pathway has already been completed, work on laying pavement stones was still underway.

A stretch of cement concrete flooring is being replaced with stones and already the work has been completed for a stretch of about 300 metres.

Mr.Jayaraman said the stones that were removed from the by-lanes, where the Tiruchi Corporation was laying concrete roads, were purchased for the purpose.

The stones were being cut into size to suit the requirements inside the temple complex.

Mr.Jayaraman also disclosed that work on building a rest house, sanctioned at a cost of Rs.21 lakh, at the Maduraiveeran grounds has been completed but for getting the underground drainage connection. A staff quarters, sanctioned at a cost of Rs.43 lakh, was also being built in the town.

With the State government already announcing that a sound and light show would be introduced in the temple, the authorities were in the process of identifying a suitable site for the purpose. The department is expected to call for tenders inviting private parties to produce the show.
