HYDERABAD: There was a comedy of errors at the puja organised prior to Roads & Buildings Minister T. Jeevan Reddy entering his official chambers in the Secretariat.

As the Minister was on his way to the allotted chamber where a puja was on, the priest applied vermilion on the forehead of D. Sridhar Babu, a Congress MLA, mistaking him for Mr. Reddy.

When the error was pointed out by the Minister's followers, the priest corrected himself by according the honour to the Minister.

While reciting slokas during the puja, the priest prayed to the Lord of Seven Hills to shower His blessings on "Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy," forgetting the name of the Minister.

The followers told the priest that while they were also for the well-being of Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy's son Jaganamohan Reddy, they wanted blessings for the Minister too!
