From the past two months, the leaders of Andhra Pradesh are involved in pleasing the voter gods due to the local and general elections. And now elections are complete and the fate of leaders is sealed in Electronic Voting Machines but the leaders are far from being peaceful, they are trembling with tension about the results which will be out on May 16th. Netas are resorting to Astrologers, Soothsayers to know their fate in advance.
Some of the leaders are resorting to pilgrimages. Pujas and yagnas seeking victories are being performed by the candidates. Several pundits especially from Seema Andhra are quite in demand. Chandi Homam and Sudarshan Homam are the most sought after pujas. Pundits are charging anywhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 50 lakh for such rituals. It is said that Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam has seen a steep increase in the political devotees after the elections. We will have to see who will have the mercy of the gods!
