KCR performs yagam at his farmhouse to seek divine blessings for a third term

Hyderabad: BRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao is attending a three-day Rayashyamala Maha Yagam from Wednesday at his farmhouse located in Erravelli on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

As many as 251 Vedic pundits from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka will take part in the yagam.

Party sources said that the chief minister is performing the yagam to seek divine blessings to secure a consecutive third term for the BRS government and also for him as the CM, a feat which was not achieved by any party or chief minister in
South India so far.

Elaborate arrangements have been made at the farmhouse for the ritual in which KCR along with his wife Shobha will take part. A huge yagashala has been built where 108 fire pits have been set up to perform yagam. The religious ritual assumes much significance in the backdrop of the upcoming State Assembly polls.

The yagam started with Ganapathi puja on Wednesday and will end on Friday with Poornahuti.

It may be recalled that KCR performed Raja Shyamala Yagam at his farmhouse in November 2018 prior to Assembly polls in December 2018. The BRS retained power for a second term in 2018. A month after Assembly polls in December
2018, KCR performed a five-day yagam at his farmhouse, in which 300 Vedic pundits took part, to express gratitude for the party's victory.
