UNION Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday offered prayers at the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara at nearby Tirumala here.

The temple management honoured the Minister with a sacred silk cloth and laddu prasadam while priests showered him with blessings, a top temple official said. Singh flew in here from Vijayawada last night on a 14-hour spiritual visit.

After an overnight halt in the hills, the 66-year-old BJP veteran paid his obeisance to Lord Sri Venkateswara at the shrine in Sunup and following a brief break at the guest house, left for New Delhi.

It is his second visit to the 2000-year-old hill temple. Earlier, the minister had worshipped at the ancient shrine on December 11, 2015,
