Both ruling and opposition politicians are trying to obtain an appointment from Ramalingam, who is staying at room no. 707 of Pearl City Hotel at Bambalapitiya.
He is in such a demand due to his previous predictions on Sri Lankan politics having come true.
About 20 years ago, he said that a politician from the south would gain power of the state and would defeat terrorism.
A leading politician sent a helicopter to get him down to his hometown and was told that he should carry out certain poojas due to his having a bad time.
Meeting a young UNP minister, the astrologer predicted that he would become president in 2020.
Today, the owner of a media institution and top businessmen visited Ramalingam.
The Indian astrologer is due to go to Mannar tomorrow at the invitation of a politician of the area.
