Congress president Sonia Gandhi and YS Jaganmohan Reddy were also extended invitations to the Inauguration ceremony of Amaravathi. It remains to be seen if they will actually turn up for the event.
Puja and Ceremony timings: The official conventional Inauguration Puja is scheduled to take place at 12:45 PM on Vijyadasami and all of the other ceremony formalities are to follow the Puja event. Here are a few fun facts that you ought to know:
