The popular “fish prasadam” will be administered by the Bathini Goud family from 9 am onwards on June 8 at the Exhibition Grounds in Nampally, Hyderabad.
On the occasion of Mrigasira Karthi, the fish prasadam is administered annually by the Bathini Goud family members. The fish prasadam will continue upto 9 am on June 9.
The fisheries officials have been directed by the Animal husbandry minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav to arrange for supply of one lakh Murrel fingerlings. The prasadam prepared by the Bathini family is stuffed in the mouth of fish fingerling and pushed down the throat of the people seeking the prasadam.
It is widely believed that taking this prasadam on this auspicious day, helps in curing asthma and other breathing disorders. Every year, thousands of people from all over India and abroad come to the city to take this prasadam. Talasani has asked officials of the fisheries and other departments to ensure that all facilities are provided for the visiting public.
Moreover, the traffic police officials have been instructed to ensure that a plan is laid out to prevent traffic jams and ensure adequate parking lots. As many as 110 RTC special buses would be run into service from railway stations, bus stands and airport to facilitate people coming from other states. Keeping in view of the earlier unfortunate incidents such as stampede, the minister has further directed the officials to ensure proper barricading.
