In promising signs of the growing warmth in relations between the Ambanis, Anil Ambani rested in the guest house owned by elder brother Mukesh's RIL at Tirumala on his way to the Lord Venkateswara temple.
Anil, who trekked his way up the 10-km distance from Tirupati, spent some time at the Sri Krishna Guest House of RIL before heading to the temple for performing rituals. Anil's wife Tina too joined him after travelling to Tirumala by road.
Anil, whose group scrapped a non-compete agreement with Mukesh Ambani-led RIL last week, was accompanied by his top executives Satish Seth and JP Chalasani.
The scrapping of the non-compete agreement was a demonstration of the Ambanis intention to buy peace, nearly five years after they parted ways. Four of these five years they had spent battling over a gas supply agreement.
The two sides had also announced last week that they would expeditiously negotiate a gas supply agreement on the lines of the May 7 Supreme Court order.
Tirumala-Tirupati Devasthanams OSD Chinnamgari Ramana said that Anil flew in here from Mumbai late last night and trekked up the hills in about 150 minutes.
After offering prayers at the shrine, which is the country's temple richest in terms of offerings received from devotees, Anil left for Renigunta airport near here to reuturn to Mumbai, Ramana said.
On May 19, Anil, along with his mother Kokilaben, had flown to the pilgrim town of Badrinath and just four days later truce came about.
