Rottela Panduga or the Roti festival which is an annual religious event organised at Bara Shaheed Dargah in Nellore is getting ready to celebrate this festival this year too.
State government has declared Rottela Panduga as state festival last year and is making proposals to spend Rs. 50 lakhs towards developing basic facilities for the devotees. Mayor Abdul Aziz and corporator Nume Mallikarjuna Yadav visited the dargah premises and asked the officials to initiate steps for providing basic facilities like sanitation and drinking water.
Devotees from different religions exchange rotis in the knee-deep waters of the tank after their wishes are fulfilled.
