Andhra chief minister Chandrababu Naidu may promise his people a first-class capital that is on par with technology from the 21st century, but not without seemingly consulting his 'vastu' advisor first.
Andhra Pradesh's new proposed capital of 'Amaravati' was off to a 'vastu' approved start as pujas and special homams were conducted on Tuesday at Uddandara-yunipalem for the foundation programme.
These rituals would continue till October 22, which is the scheduled day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of the capital.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, all constructions are being carried out in accordance to 'vastu' and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu's personal vastu advisor M Raghavaiah is camped at the venue himself and giving suggestions to the officials.
The report also adds that Raghavaiah inspected the place near the main dais and claimed that the place is very important for the smooth functioning of construction works of new capital Amaravati and suggested construction of 'north-east' facing entrances by the Krishna river for VVIPs and VIPs.
He also insisted that the main dias should be in the middle of the ground, facing east, while the parking spot for VIPs and VVIPs should be on the left of the dais and the helipads behind it.
Many higher rank police officials higher from Krishna and Guntur districts are also helping out in the arrangements.
