CM K Chandrasekhar Rao’s long-standing plans are beginning to bear fruit. The foundation stones are laid for the Rs 100 Cr new Assembly building and for the Rs 400 Cr new Secretariat building today. The old Assembly building was there from the Nizam rulers time. This is not meeting the present day needs. Because of this, the new Assembly is being built in 17.9 acres land available at the R&B premises in Erramanjil.
The critics are asking why KCR is not preferring to use the existing buildings as they are serving the purpose. But KCR eventually went ahead with his plans saying that modern buildings are the need of the hour. Political circles are surprised as there is no talk of constructing buildings for Assembly and Secretariat in AP at all. But Telangana is going to have a new second set of buildings for the same.
