Tirupati (AP): Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha on Thursday arrived at Tirumala, the hill abode of Lord Venkateswara, near here, to pay his obeisance to the deity, a temple official said.
Sinha was accorded a warm welcome by chairman of Tirumala-Tirupati Devasthanom (TTD) Y V Subba Reddy and Additional Executive Officer A V Dharma Reddy upon arrival, the official told PTI.
