TDP supremo and chief minister Chandrababu Naidu wants all his MLAs and other party leaders to be sound both physically and spiritually so that they could manage the affairs of the party and constituencies well. In the two-day party session held at Tiruapati last week, Naidu laid stress on this aspect and offered some tips to make them fit for mission 2019. Chief minister, a great believer in the spiritual power, had also organized a crash course for the bureaucrats and people’s representatives for three days in ‘inner engineering’ in January this year. Guru Jaggi Vasudev, along with 100 of his volunteers, taught yoga prakriyas and asanas to the CM, ministers, IAS, IPS and IFS officers and mayors etc. This was a first of its kind for any government in India. For three days the government was almost shut.
Now it is the turn of Baba Ramdev. The Yoga guru, who of late developed unusual proximity with the chief minister, is said to have agreed to give a crash one-day program on Yoga techniques for AP MLAs and MLCs tentatively on December 20. Ramdev was the country’s largest individual buyer of red sanders from Andhra Pradesh. Later during Godavari Pushkaralu, Ramadev was Naidu’s chief guest at Rajamahendravaramu. He is planning to develop a Yoga Village on the lines of university and health resort near Tirupati. He sought some land and the state agreed. According to sources, the program is scheduled for a day during the winter session of Assembly expected to commence from December17. It is going to be brief five-day session, according to sources.
Even though, Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao had earlier wanted to hold the winter session at Tullur in Amaravati capital region, his efforts did not take off because of lack of time. So, the session is being held in the Assembly of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad. During the session, Baba Ramdev is expected to spend a day with legislators from the state in a resort in the outskirts of Hyderabad. Sources said details are being worked out.
