Vastavam web: Decks were cleared for the Telangana government to go ahead with the construction of new Secretariat as Andhra Pradesh Thursday completed handing over all the four blocks which were under its control to the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led government. The Andhra Pradesh government was allotted four blocks in the secretariat complex here after bifurcation of the state in 2014, as Hyderabad was since made a common capital for both the states for 10 years.
Earlier this month, Governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana ESL Narasimhan issued an order re-allotting the buildings and bungalows under the Andhra Pradesh government’s custody to Telangana. The Andhra Pradesh government on Wednesday handed over ‘K’ and North ‘H’ blocks to its Telangana counterpart. Rao, on June 18, had said a new secretariat would be constructed replacing the existing one. He had said foundation stone for the new office complex would be laid on June 27.
