The Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar is in Delhi to convince the PM Modi so that he launches the Metro rail and also lays the foundation stone for the new Secretariat building in the last week of November.
Modi is set to reach Hyderabad to take part in the Global Entrepreneurs Summit.
“Jaitley informed the CM that the Centre is willing to hand over Bison Polo Ground for the construction of a new secretariat and required lands for the expansion of Karimnagar and Medchal highways,” a release from the CMs office said after his meeting with Jaitely,
But there is still resistance from the Opposition that there is no need for a new secretariat and that the same amount can be spent on other priorities.
According to the designs released, the new Secretariat resembles the Federal Building in Chicago and the National Palace in Santo Domingo of the Dominican Republic in its elevation.
