KURNOOL: Notwithstanding the predictions of hung Assembly in the State by political observers, astrologers too have been making their own predictions based on the birth signs of the heads of the respective parties.

Senior astrologer Upadrasta Subramanyam who examined the birth signs of Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, N. Chandrababu Naidu, K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Chiranjeevi said the celestial bodies are in favour of Chandrababu Naidu only.

According to him, the Congress would be restricted to 100 to 120 seats while TDP and its friends would have a tally of 150 to 160. Mr. Naidu would drum up the required support because of favourable movement of planets, he said. Mr. Chiranjeevi, who is under the evil influence of Saturn, is likely to be restricted to 32 to 40. Moreover, he filed the nomination at an inauspicious time.

Mr. Subramanyam said TRS leader K. Chandrasekhar Rao would not be successful in his mission to form Telangana state because of unfavourable astrological conditions. Moreover, Andhra Pradesh was formed at an auspicious time on November 1, 1956, at 9.15 a.m. in Vrischika lagnam, he said. “No force would be able to break the State, which is blessed with stability,” he said.

The astrologer predicted NDA government at the Centre with an independent strength of 180-200 seats while UPA would be confined to 140-150 seats. L.K. Advani has favourable celestial movement to become Prime Minister. Manmohan Singh has nothing favourable to continue in power, he said.
