Telangana CM KCR inaugurates Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Telangana State Secretariat
Telangana Chief Minister (CM) K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) inaugurated the sprawling new Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Telangana State Secretariat in Hyderabad on Sunday.
The new complex, which is located on the same site as the demolished old secretariat, stands 265 feet tall and is spread over an area of 10,51,676sft on a land of 28 acres.
K Chandrasekhar Rao laid the foundation stone for the construction of the Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Telangana State Secretariat in late June 2019. However, the works began only in early 2021 because of Covid-19 along with issues such as court cases.
Located on the banks of Hussain Sagar Lake, the new Telangana Secretariat building is in proximity to the 125ft bronze statue of Dr. BR Ambedkar and the upcoming Martyrs memorial near Lumbini Park.
