GURU TO ALL CMs
Hyderabad-based godman Tridandi Chinna Jeeyar seems to have made a hobby of collecting chief ministers. In November 2016, Telangana CM K. Chandrashekar Rao had invited him to inaugurate his nine-acre office-cum-residence, Pragati Bhavan. More recently, Andhra Pradesh CM Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy paid his respects to him, while B.S. Yediyurappa, determined to complete a full term as Karnataka CM—having failed to do so thrice—made his way to Jeeyar’s ashram on August 1 to spend a night there.
