Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday visited the Tirumala Hills to worship at the Temple of Lord Venkateswara. He was accompanied by Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy.
See the pictures of him visiting the temple below:
He had arrived in the temple town of Tirupati in the evening. The Andhra Pradesh chief minister, Governor E S L Narasimhan, Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy and others received the prime minister at the Tirupati airport at Renigunta after he landed from Colombo.
The Prime Minister later went to the Electronics Park in Renigunta to address a thanksgiving meeting organised by the BJP. He is scheduled to depart for New Delhi at 8.15 PM.
Prior to his visit to Andhra Pradesh, PM Modi had gone to Sri Lanka. The visit reflected the importance India attaches to its 'Neighbourhood First' policy. On Saturday he was in Maldives and addressed a speech in the Maldivian Parliament.
Prime Minister's visit to the two neighbouring countries demonstrates the priority that India attaches to the SAGAR (Security and Growth for All in the Region) doctrine.
