Telangana Government vacated the Old Secretariat Building a long ago to demolish it and build a brand new one in its place. The issue is in the High Court and has been pending for several months. The State Government is now planning to use the Secretariat as Isolation Center for Coronavirus patients. Very soon, the works will begin.
Telangana Secretariat was housed in Temporary Buildings for several months. The old Secretariat has ten huge blocks that housed the entire state government administration in Erstwhile Andhra Pradesh. After the state bifurcation, five blocks were allotted to Andhra Pradesh and four to Telangana. The G Block, which is in a dilapidated condition, was left idle.
