Secretariat Vaastu didn't work out for KCR?

Secretariat Vaastu didn't work out for KCR?

It appears that the new Secretariat building constructed by Bharat Rashtra Samithi president and former Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has turned out to be a bad omen for him.

Days after the loss of BRS in the assembly elections, people started analyzing reasons for his defeat. Apart from the general anti-incumbency and the resurgence of the Congress party, one reason being discussed for KCR's loss is the bad Vaastu of the newly-built Secretariat complex.

On April 28 this year, KCR inaugurated the new Secretariat complex, which he had renamed after B R Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution.

The imposing eight-storeyed structure houses the chambers of all the ministers and offices of secretaries and heads of departments – all under one roof.

KCR believed that the old Secretariat complex, which had been the seat of the highest administration since the formation of combined Andhra Pradesh state, had negative vibes and had brought bad luck to the previous chief ministers.

His Vaastu advisor, Suddala Sudhakar Teja, was the one who had advised the chief minister to demolish the old Secretariat complex and go in for a new building.

"There are some serious Vaastu problems in the old secretariat. The buildings should have perfect ventilation, flow of natural energy from all sides, greenery, and enough moving space," Teja said.

He said the latest Secretariat building houses the perfectly Vaastu-compliant CM’s chamber on the sixth floor of the state-of-the-art edifice, built at a cost of over Rs 600 crore by the renowned construction firm Shapoorji-Pallonji.

But now, the same Vaastu-compliant building has turned out to be a negative factor for KCR. He hardly came to this new Secretariat complex and addressed a few official meetings and cabinet meetings. In spite of the new building, he was holding meetings with his officials at Pragati Bhavan itself.

However, the new chief minister A Revanth Reddy doesn’t seem to have any plans to change the Vaastu at present. He took charge as the chief minister in the same chamber where KCR used to sit, and all the ministers will be assuming their chambers in the same complex.

The entry into the new building, which was completely restricted for the people and even the media, has now been thrown open to visitors, and a separate chamber has been provided for the media on the ground floor itself.

It remains to be seen whether this Vaastu works out for Revanth Reddy!

Authentic Guntur Kaaram
