TS Secretariat demolition: SC dismisses petition

The Supreme Court has dismissed the petition filed by Congress MLC T Jeevan Reddy challenging the TS High Court verdict on the demolition of the old Secretariat buildings and construction of new buildings.

The Apex Court made it clear that the construction of Secretariat is totally prerogative of the state government and it would not interfere in the policy matter.

The Supreme Court’s verdict on this is like a slap on the faces of those who are opposing the construction of a new Secretariat, observers pointed out.
