State poll rout, netas’ exodus make KCR go on a Vaastu overdrive | India News

HYDERABAD: A strong believer in Vaastu, former Telangana CM and BRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to set his own house, party headquarters Telangana Bhavan, in order after last year’s assembly election rout and a series of recent defections.
Work has started to shift the main entrance of the 60-room building in Hyderabad’s upscale Banjara Hills to make it Vaastu-compliant in the hope this will alter the party’s flagging fortunes.
BRS bagged only 39 seats in the 119-member assembly last year. What worries it more is the spate of desertions of senior leaders like K Keshava Rao and Kadiyam Srihari to Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
The main entrance of the 40,000sqft Telangana Bhavan, built in 2005, is now on the north-west side.
Another gate is now being made on the north-eastern side. A ramp is also coming up on the north-eastern side for free movement of vehicles.
“Since the Bhavan has veedhi potu or T-junction (three roads meeting at a point right opposite the building which drains massive amounts of energy in Vaastu parlance), modifications are being made now to overcome the negative effect,” a BRS leader said.
A senior leader, however, sought to play down the connection, contending that the north-eastern gate was being made to avoid inconvenience to commuters facing traffic jams on the busy Road No. 12, Banjara Hills.
Interestingly, BRS (formerly TRS) top brass had carried out some changes in 2014 and 2017 in the building, which also boasts a meeting hall that can hold 500 people. In 2014, internal walls and doors were removed or according to Vaastu principles.
