Tirupati Darshan Issue

Petitioning: devotees had been asked to wait 48 to 50 hour for balaji darshan

Petitioner: Raj started on May 27, 2018

I been visiting Tirumala since 1996 to get darsshan of venkateshwara balaji, i never had a issue in drashan maximum i had waited for 10 hour and when ever i went to tirumala by walking from Alipari i use to get a darshan token and i use to get a darshan in 6 hours.

On 25th May i went to tirumala by padda yathra along with me thousands were their, when i reached the Padda yatra token office they said no more token is available and same they informed to other thousands of padda yatra . I went ahead thinking that i will go for free darshan or i will buy Rs 300 ticket. When i went for RS 300 ticket counter they said i need to book online which was not possible as the tickets were full, when i went to Free darshan they said that i need to wait 50 hours it more then 2 days which is ridiculas.

I was worried about old people who came for darshan but due to 50 hours waiting time they went back with a tears in their eyes, and worried of others who came from outstation who cannot wait for 50 hours as they need to cancel the return flight ticket or train or bus tickets.

I think corruption had started in Tirumala devasthana, because last 22 year everything went fine suddenly how the waiting time can be increased to 50 hours, Tirumala devasthanas Trustee is giving more important to rich people mean if you have money you will get darshan.
