Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy has once again proved that he is right: that Lord Varun (rain god) is always on his side.
Within 48 hours of the Chief Minister giving directions to the officials of the Endowments Department to perform Varuna yagnas all over the state under the auspices of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, it has started raining cats and dogs all over the state. At the same time, the prayers at churches and mosques also came to his rescue.
According to Met officials, there is going to be copious rain all over the state in the coming days and farmers can happily take up sowing operations. And YSR is out of crisis!
