HYDERABAD: Making it clear that he will not go back on his decision to construct a new Secretariat at Bison Polo Grounds, KCR rubbished aside all objections raised by BJP members and said that he would invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi for laying the foundation stone for the Secretariat. He made this announcement in the State Legislative Assembly on Wednesday.
Intervening during Question Hour to a question raised by BJPs, Rao said, “No other state, except TS, has such a bad Secretariat building.”
The present Secretariat neither has proper planning nor permissions from GHMC. There is no space to move fire tender and this poses a grave threat in case of fire accidents, Rao said.
When BJP members G Kishan Reddy and K Laxman wanted the state to withdraw the proposal to construct a new Secretariat, Rao said that the government would go ahead with its plans. Rao, however, said, “Vastu is a factor. But, it is not the lone factor,” the CM explained.
