Governor asked to help stop demolition of Secretariat, Errum Manzil
The Telangana Democratic Forum has questioned the rationale behind Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s decision to dismantle the existing Secretariat complex as well as the Errum Manzil palace recognized as heritage structure. The Forum sought the intervention of Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan in prevailing upon the State government to desist from its moves.
A delegation of members of the Forum and G. Venkataswamy Foundation called on the Governor at Raj Bhavan on Monday and urged him to protect the buildings and “avoid wastage of huge public money” in the name of construction of new secretariat complex.
The delegation, led by G. Venkataswamy Foundation founder and former member of Parliament G. Vivek, comprised senior Congress leaders K. Jana Reddy, T. Jeevan Reddy, A. Revanth Reddy and Mohd. Ali Shabbir, Ch. Ramachandra Reddy and D. K. Aruna of the BJP, T-TDP president L. V. Ramana, Telangana Jana Samiti president M. Kodandaram, Chada Venkat Reddy (CPI), social activist P.L. Vishweshwar Rao and others.
