On his arrival at the shrine at the crack of dawn, he was accorded a warm welcome. He spent about half an hour in the shrine, temple sources told PTI.
He took to Twitter to share pictures and wrote, "Our country is moving in the right direction towards economic prosperity and want the fruits of development to reach to every section. I also invoked the Lord’s blessings for good rainfall and farmers’ well-being."

After offering prayers, the vice president was honoured with a sacred silk cloth and 'prasadam' by the management of the shrine.
Later, talking to reporters, he said Lord Venkateswara was his family deity and thus he was named after the Lord.
