Is Secretariat demolition necessary? Telangana HC

0

The Telangana High Court asked the Chandrasekhar Rao government whether there is any need for demolishing existing buildings in Secretariat in Hyderabad. The court also asked whether the newly acquired Andhra Pradesh buildings are not enough to meet the additional requirements. The court is hearing arguments put forward by the Additional Advocate General and also the petitioner’s advocate.

A person named PL Visweswara Rao made the petition saying that the Government is unnecessarily demolishing Secretariat buildings by making wasteful expenditure of public money. When the court asked why it should interfere with administration, Rao’s advocate argued that Telangana is already in debts and the court should intervene in public interest.

Additional Advocate General told the court that the existing Secretariat buildings do not have enough safety facilities as per fire department reports. The court pointed out that such reports came up only after the Cabinet decided to construct new Secretariat buildings. AAG later said that the government was intending to construct a big building complex where all departments could be located in one place.

Telangana High Court questions need for new Assembly building

0

The KCR government is facing a tough time defending its proposed project to construct a new Assembly complex. The Telangana High Court asked the government whether there’s a need to construct new buildings as the old buildings have all the facilities right now. The court is hearing arguments in public interest litigation which pleaded for the protection of historical structures in Erramanjil prime locality.

The High Court also found fault with the government for going ahead with the demolition of the historic buildings without showing proof of the permission taken from the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority. The court asked why is it that the government is not able to specifically say whether it has got permission from the required authorities to demolish historic structures.

Many hurdles are being put since the KCR government began making efforts to move the Assembly from its location to some other place where more space is available for constructing modern buildings with the latest facilities. All Opposition parties are criticising the government move in this regard.

Telangana High Court questions demolitions

0

Problems continue for CM K Chandrasekhara Rao’s move to construct new Assembly building in place of Erramanjil historic buildings. Now, the Telangana High Court questioned the KCR government based on which law it is going to demolish the historic monuments. Some petitioners argued before the court that Erramanjil are in the list of heritage structures which should not be allowed to be demolished by the government.

The government is arguing that the structures are not historical buildings and they have been removed from the list of heritage monuments already. The demolitions are being taken up to construct new buildings for Assembly in this location. The present Assembly buildings are not spacious enough to conduct the proceedings of the House.

The petitioners told the court that the government is going to waste lot of public money on the new Assembly buildings though there is no immediate need for the same. These works will be taken up if the demolition of historic buildings are allowed now. These buildings were built during the time of Nizams and they should be protected for future generations.

Telangana HC upholds disqualification of two MLCs

0

The Telangana High Court on Wednesday upheld the Telangana Legislative Council Chairman’s disqualification of two legislators belonging to the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for defection.

A division bench headed by Chief justice Raghavendra Singh Chauhan dismissed the petitions by Ramulu Nayak and Yadav Reddy to strike down their disqualification.

The court, which had reserved its orders last month, observed that Council Chairman Swamy Goud acted constitutionally to disqualify the two Members of Legislative Council (MLCs).

As the lawyer of the two legislators sought orders to the Election Commission not to hold elections for the two seats till they move the Supreme Court to challenge the High Court verdict, the bench asked the poll panel to take note of the same.

Ramulu Nayak, Yadav Reddy and Bhupati Reddy of the TRS had defected to the Congress party before December 2018 Assembly elections. After coming back to power, the TRS sought disqualification of the three MLCs and the Council Chairman had disqualified them.

The trio had filed petitions challenging the disqualification. Bhupati Reddy’s petition is still pending before the court as he also challenged the validity of Para 8 of the 10th Schedule of the Constitution that allow such disqualifications.
