Indian politician builds mansion with bullet-proof bathroom using taxpayer money

SHARE:

A senior Indian politician has caused outrage by building a large mansion including a bullet-proof bathroom using £5.8m of taxpayer money.

K Chandrashekhar Rao, the Chief Minister of the Southern Indian state of Telangana, had commissioned the 100,000 sq feet property to be built in a prime location in the state capital, Hydrerabad City.


In addition to the extra safe bathroom, the building named Pragathi Bhavan includes an auditorium that can accommodate 250 people and a meeting hall that can hold 500 people.

Mr Rao did not move into the house until it was blessed in a series of rituals by his spiritual guru, Chinna Jeeyar Swamy.

The Chief Minister is a devotee of vaastu, an ancient Hindu series of beliefs regarding architecture - similar to Feng shui. Pragathi Bhavan was built according to this custom described by some critic

Political commentator, Kingsuk Nag, told BBCthe house illustrate's Mr Rao's "feudal" mentality.

He said: "It's like the good old days when the feudal lord would have a castle that would have a house as well as his office.

"And, then the subjects would say, oh, what a big palace."

Earlier this month, Mr Rao caused consternation by announcing plans to destroy the state government complex due to it being "unlucky" and erecting a new one at the cost of £42m.

The complex which centres around the 19th century Saifabad Palace was thought to be unlucky by its first intended resident - the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad, Mahboob Ali Pasha.

Mr Rao has inherited this dislike for the building, adding that it does not conform to vaastu principles.

He said: "Definitely this secretariat has bad vaastu. History is proof that no-one has prospered because of this. Let Telangana not suffer."
