Sri Durga Malleswara Swamyvarla Devasthanam has chalked out arrangements to toss open Mallikarjuna Mahamandpam and Rajagopuram to open either on March 29 or April 10. Anyway, the pace of works shows that the structures “may not be in full shape” by that time.
The temple authorities had set February 20 as due date for the builders to finish the works. Anyway, the builders couldn’t stick to due date for different reasons including “financial constraints.”
In spite of the fact that almost 90 every percent of works had been finished, minor works, for example, line lines and repainting works need to be taken up. “Development of line lines is unrealistic to be finished according to calendar, unless the builder sends more workers,” said an authority.
At a late survey meeting, the higher-ups at Hyderabad communicated “displeasure over colour pattern” utilized as a part of Mallikarjuna Mahamandapam. They asked the Durga temple authorities to repaint the structure with suitable and satisfying hues. It will take at the very least a week to totally re-try the artwork that synchronizes recently fabricated structure with the temple, sources say.
The contracter, according sources, has asked the Executive Officer (EO) to mastermind part installment of bills under allowable provisos. He is said to have communicated powerlessness to finish the works unless the temple made installment of Rs. 20 lakh to Rs. 30 lakh. At the same time, as standards don’t permit installment of bills before fulfillment of works, the appeal was not tended to. Along these lines, the works are advancing at a snail’s pace, sources say.
The temple authorities say that the higher-ups focused in initiation dates without taking the advancement of works into consideration.
Sringeri Seer Bharati Teertha proposed that two days — March 29 and April 10 — were auspicious. Purushottama Teertha Bharati of Sivaganga Peetham, follower of Sringeri diviner, is booked to initiate the Rajagopuram, while Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu is slated to toss open Mandapam.
The Mahamandapam at the Kanaga Durga temple has been based on the lines of the Tirumala Vaikuntham line complex.
The temple spent almost Rs. 25.95 crore on mandapam works, while Rajagopuram expense was Rs. 15.55 cr
