Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao is gearing up for the Bhoomi Pooja of the new secretariat and a new legislature complex comprising Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council on 27th of this month. The secretariat will be build by demolishing the existing Secretariat.
And the same time, the new legislature complex comprising Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council will be built at Errum Manzil at a cost of Rs 100 crore. Couple of days ahead of the Bhoomi Pooja, the legal heirs of Nawab Fakhrul Mulk, who owned the Errum Manzil Palace in Hyderabad, have written to the government against the idea.
They urged him to reconsider the decision to demolish the 1870 structure for the construction of a new State Assembly. They said Errum Manzil is a historical monument wherein top British dignitaries including the Viceroy of India had visited the palace. It is also submitted that this beautiful structure is very much part of Hyderabad’s history, culture, and heritage.
It is known that KCR had announced that the existing Assembly building will be preserved as a heritage structure. They demanded the same for Errum Manzil as well.
