Telangana High Court questions need for new Assembly building


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.
