Telangana Secretariat Design Leaked?:- The revelation of design of the proposed new Secretariat building of Telangana by Roads and Buildings Minister Tummala Nageshwar Rao has drawn a lot of criticism from various quarters.
This new secretariat would cost a whopping amount of Rs 300 crore to public exchequer and it is being planned to construct at the controversial Bison Polo lands in Hyderabad. It is proposed to construct three floor palatial building accommodating Chief Minister, Ministers, Secretaries and head of all departments. Noted Mumbai - based architecture firm has conceived the design. It is said that the new building resembles an ancient structure of Chicago in the USA and has no resemblances whatsoever with the local culture.
Now, as the design has been leaked, KCR is angry on Nageshwar Rao, who has leaked the details to the media, even before CM has approved it. Apparently, he wanted to make some more modifications in the design. KCR wanted to review the proposal with experts before it was made public.
It needs to be seen whether KCR would make any changes or would go with the current plan. At the moment, the new design of the Telangana secretariat is widely shared in political circuits.
