Ranil to visit Andhra Pradesh temple to seek blessings

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will visit the Lord Balaji temple at Tirumala in Andhra Pradesh, on December 22, the Press Trust of India reported.

Wickremesinghe will arrive in Chennai on December 21 for the visit, officials said referring to the Sri Lankan Prime Minister’s tentative itinerary.

He will take a chopper from Chennai to reach Tirupati airport (Renigunta) which is about 130 kilometers from Chennai and proceed to the temple by road from there, they said.

Wickremesinghe is set to return to Sri Lanka on the same day after offering prayers at the hill temple, they added.

He was in India in October last, for an official visit and had last year offered prayers at the Sri Krishna temple at Guruvayur in Kerala. (Colombo Gazette)
