In what can be a shocking fact, former IT & Panchayat Raj Minister Nara Lokesh's chamber in secretariat has been dejected by the newly elected ministers in Jagan's cabinet. Lokesh had a huge chamber in the fifth block of the Secretariat at Velagapudi of Amaravati. Nara Lokesh had operated as minister from there.
But later in 2019 general elections, not only TDP was limited to 23 MLA seats out of 175 seats, but Nara Lokesh, who had contested as MLA for the first time from Mangalagiri constituency in capital region, has been defeated in the hands of sitting MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy. With this, speculations are rife that poor Vastu compliance of Lokesh's chamber in the 5th block is one of the reasons for his defeat.
As per Secretariat officials, first a minister in Jagan's cabinet has been allocated with Lokesh's chamber. The minister has requested for another chamber and then the Lokesh's chamber was allocated to another minister who had also refused to move into. Like wise, total four ministers in Jagan's cabinet have rejected Lokesh's chamber. With this, secretariat officials are breaking their heads over how to fill the space of Lokesh's chamber. Officials are hoping that CM Jagan would intervene and ask one of his cabinet colleagues to occupy Lokesh's chamber in order to break the myth and jinx.
