The revenue department said it was suspending Medaram Sammakka-Saralamma darshans in the Thadwai zone of Mulugu district. Evo Rajendra said devotees would not be allowed from Monday. He spoke to the media along with Siddaboina Jagga Rao, president of the Priests Association, in the vicinity of Gaddela. Mini Madaram staff explained that the decision was made due to the arrival of the coronavirus.
Two senior and junior assistants, who were on special duty at the mini-fair from February 24 to 27, we’re told by the clergy that the coronation had been confirmed and that the nymphs would not be allowed to visit the alleys for 21 days at their request. Devotees have been advised not to come to Medaram since Monday. Devotees from far and wide are advised to take note of this.
Corona stirred at the Mini Medaram Fair. Two employees of the revenue department were infected with the virus. Devotees are worried about this. Criticisms are coming that those who come here do not follow the minimum precaution. It is believed that the fair should be held after taking care of the corona.
As the coronavirus spreads, action must be taken. But staff say the coronavirus could have come because of a planning error. Authorities, however, advised devotees coming to the fair to take Kovid precautions and pay homage to Ammavaru. But the temple staff got the virus. With 10 lakh devotees already visiting fear is haunting what will happen.
