The all party delegation urged Mr. Narasimhan to look into the matter and order the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Government to stop the demolition of the old Secretariat buildings in the State.
The leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP,) the Indian National Congress (INC) and the Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) also filed several petitions in the High Court in the last few days. However, as no action was taken by the High Court, the leaders decided to take the matter to the Supreme Court (SC.)
The all party delegation was led by the INC leaders, K. Jana Reddy and A. Revanth Reddy, the BJP leaders, Shabbir Ali, Ponnam Prabhakar, Jeevan Reddy, D.K. Aruna and Chintala Ramachandra Reddy.
Apart from the INC and the BJP, L. Ramana of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP,) Kodandaram and P. L. Vishweshwar Rao of the TJS and Chada Venkat Reddy of the Communist Party of India (CPI) were also present during the meeting.
During the meeting, Shabbir Ali, one of the INC leaders, said, the Governor of Telangana was ignoring the matter, as he has friendly relations with K.Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister (CM) of Telangana and Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the CM of Andhra Pradesh (AP.)
The leaders met Narasimhan, as he is the custodian of the Government’s properties which are in the limits of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC.) They requested him to use his powers and ensure the Secretariat buildings are protected from misuse by the State Government.
Kodandram said, the State is not strong economically as of now to construct new Secretariat buildings as they did not even release the medical bills of the Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) of the Party who got treatment at private hospitals.
On the other hand, A. Revanth Reddy, said, in the name of building a new Secretariat, there is a big conspiracy to displace land records as KCR has 100 acres of illegal land.
The leaders asked the Governor to look into the matter and take the necessary steps to stop the demolition of the old Secretariat and the construction of the new Secretariat.
