Administration of fish prasadam by Bathini Goud family will commence at 7.30 pm on June 7 in the exhibition grounds here at Nampally. Disclosing this on Sunday, Bathini Harinath Goud said people could come directly to the venue and take the fish prasadam as more than 35 counters would be opened this time.
Last year, the fish prasadam was administered to nearly six lakh people. This year too as many are expected to get it. Besides, a vegetarian prasadam with jaggery would also be given to asthma patients this time. It may be mentioned that on ‘Mrigasira Karte,’ a day that marks the beginning of the monsoon, a herbal paste prepared by Bathini Goud family, is put into the mouth of live murrel fingerling which is swallowed by asthma patients.
Harinath Goud appealed to the people to ensure that the follow-up prasadam given by Bathini family after administration of fish prasadam was taken on specified dates thereafter to derive total benefit from the prasadam. Hyderabad District authoriteis are holding a meeting on Monday to review the arrangements.
