The first muhurtham set by Swamy Swaroopanandendra Saraswati of the Visakhapatnam Sarada Peetham, according to reports, was march 12. For unknown reasons, jagan, however, is not content with the situation and is said to have spoken to chinna Jeeyar Swamy at Seethanagaram near Vijayawada, who reportedly suggested the Ugadi muhurtham. According to sources, things between visakha Sarada Peetham seer and jagan have been tense for the past few days. Swaroopanandendra Swamy and his successor Swatmanandendra, who previously had royal access to tadepalli palace, are no longer allowed to do so.
Swatmanandendra recently waited four hours to meet jagan, but he had to leave empty-handed after failing to secure the appointment. According to insiders, "the reasons for this sudden change in the chief minister's stance toward the Swamijis are not immediately understood." jagan was actually invited to the Purnahuti Yagnam programme that was held as part of the recent conclusion of visakha Sarada Peetham's yearly Brahmotsavams. However, he decided not to go and postponed his trip to Visakhapatnam.
