Delivering the customary "Panchaanga Shravanam", Astrologist Bachampalli Santosh Kumar Sharma has stated some important findings. "At least five ministers are set to lose their ministerial berths, and it would get difficult for them to regain the portfolios. Some of the MLAs, with certain zodiac signs will not get the tickets in the upcoming elections. There is a chance for corruption in the Endowments Department. Monsoons will continue till November and there are chances for floods to occur. With the strength and support of Sun, CM KCR can not only flourish in Telangana, but also in the national politics. Media organizations would have plenty of news to cover this year," he said.
