KCR Laying Foundation Stone For Telangana New Secretariat, Assembly buildings. Since becoming the Chief Minister of Telangana in 2014, Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) has never settled for anything less than ‘grand’ when it comes to conceptualizing and constructing structures. Be it the Kaleshwaram irrigation project or Yadadri Temple, he has ensured every such structure has his very own stamp of grandeur. The KCR’s latest fascination is the construction of brand new buildings to house the Secretariat and the Assembly.
On Thursday, KCR Laying Foundation Stone For Telangana New Secretariat and Assembly buildings. While the new Secretariat building will be built on the existing Secretariat premises facing the famous Hussain Sagar Lake, the Assembly will shift from the iconic heritage structure built by the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad to Errum Manzil in Khairatabad, the heart of the city.
KCR, however, is facing severe criticism as hundreds of crores of rupees will be spent on constructing these two buildings. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed earlier on Thursday as the foundation stones were being laid in the Telangana High Court, by PL Vishweshwara Rao, former Dean at Osmania University. “This Chief Minister wants to go down in history as a great man. He is squandering public money at a time when health, agriculture, and education sectors are in bad shape in the state of Telangana,” he said.
