Government has named the buildings complex -- two existing buildings being used by the Chief Minister, the newly-built CM residence, office and a conference hall -- as 'Pragati Bhavan', they said.

The conference hall has been named as 'Janahita'. The Chief Minister would interact with different sections of society, including farmers, workers, employees and artisans, on formulation of policies and their implementation in 'Janahita'.

Different rituals like 'Daiva Pravesam' would be performed as part of the 'Griha Pravesam' ceremony, the sources said. Prayers of different religions would also be performed on the occasion.

Governor of and ESL Narasimhan and his wife would attend the event. Religious guru Tridandi Srimannarayana Chinna Jeeyar Swamy would also be present, the sources added.

Some media reports said the sprawling new residence, with state-of-the-art facilities, has come up over one lakh square feet space.

The reports said that due to security reasons, "bullet-proof" bathrooms have been constructed in the house.

A government statement had earlier said the new residence had been planned as the Chief Minister's camp office and residence did not have adequate facilities for parking and holding large meetings.
