Astrologers are differing with this and pitching for celebrating Ugadi on March 28.
Hyderabad: The state government has declared a holiday on March 29 for Ugadi, the Telugu New Year.
However, astrologers are differing with this and pitching for celebrating Ugadi on March 28. Noted astrologer Srinivasa Gargeya urged the people to celebrate Ugadi on March 28 and requested governments of both Telangana state and Andhra Pradesh to declare the holiday on that day instead of March 29.
A group of astrologers, which follows the Drugganitha panchangam, wants the Telugu New Year to be celebrated on March 28, a Tuesday.
Kanchipeetam Siddhanthi L. Subramanyam, noted astrologer P. Srinivasa Gargeya, and a few others supported March 28 but the Srungeri Peetham, TTD and some others want Ugadi to be celebrated on March 29.
Siddhanthi Subramanyam and astrologer Srinivas Gargeya said that out of 56 noted panchangam pandits and astrologers in Telangana state and Andhra Pradesh, 48 favoured celebrating Ugadi on March 28 and had given a written representation to government in this regard.
