YS Jagan Mohan Reddy took the help of Swami Swaroopananda Saraswathi before the 2019 elections to appease the Hindu voters. Coming from a family of evangelists, Jagan even made Temple Trips to attract Hindu Voters. There were even rumors that Jagan made Ghar Wapasi to Hinduism.
The Swamy used to be a strong vocal supporter of Jagan and used to resort to Political Criticism of the then Chandrababu Naidu.
Once in power, Jagan used to take the advice of Swamy on every matter. We have seen people getting nominated to the TTD board on Swamy’s recommendation. We have seen Jagan gifting a 15 Crore land in Kothavalasa at a nominal cost of One Lakh Rupees per acre.
YSR Congress leaders used to beeline to the Swamy every now and then to keep his name buzzing.
But all of sudden an announcement of Swaroopananda is becoming viral on social media. The other day, the Swamy announced that this will be his last birthday in Vizag Ashram and he will be celebrating his next birthday in the ashram that is being constructed in Hyderabad.
He says he is shifting to Hyderabad permanently to continue research of ‘Adi Shankarula Adavitha Thathvam‘ for the rest of his life and will handover Vizag Ashram to Swapnanendra Saraswati the next seer.
There is a criticism on social media that Swaroopananda is moving out of Andhra Pradesh since he is not sure of Jagan returning to power in 2024 Elections and is seeking safe aslyum in Telangana.
