Devotees from across the country have been expressing dissatisfaction over shortage of ‘prasadam’. The temple authorities are finding it difficult to supply ‘prasadam’ at the time of festivals. The temple authorities are not able to provide more than five ‘laddus’ to each pilgrim.
Five thousand to 8,000 ‘laddus’ are sold on normal days and on festival days the number may go up to 20,000 to 25,000. The temple authorities are not in a position to meet the demand.
The temple authorities are selling 80 g ‘laddu’ at Rs 5 to the devotees.
On pilgrims’ demand, the temple authorities have taken a decision to prepare half kg ‘laddu’ at a cost of Rs 50.
