Telangana Secretariat to be at Erragadda, ‘vastu defect’ reason behind shifting

Written by | January 31, 2015 | 0

Hyderabad: The Telangana Cabinet on Friday decided to scrap the controversial FAST (Financial Assistance to Students of Telangana) scheme and to continue with the previous Congress government’s fee reimbursement scheme.

In a seven-hour-long meeting, the Cabinet also decided to shift the Secretariat to the Erragadda Chest Hospital location where a new Secretariat complex will be constructed at a cost of Rs 150 crore.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao said that the existing age-old Secretariat buildings had dangerous vastu defects that would only bring evil and not allow the state to prosper.

Relocation of the Chest Hospital had also become inevitable since it was located in a heavily polluted area, he stated, adding that the Chest Hospital would be shifted to Vikarabad, at the old TB Sanitarium and if needed, doctors and other medical staff would be adjusted from Hyderabad-based hospitals.
