Following a High Court advisory, the Telangana government today allowed the media to cover the demolition of the buildings in the Secretariat complex amid tight police security.

However, some of the media still had a scuffle with the police for not allowing them to get down from their vans at the site for coverage.

While some mediapersons did manage to get down, the remaining were allowed to cover only from their vehicles. Those in open top vehicles were allowed to take videos and photos of the structures being dismantled.

Due to those restrictions on disembarking from their vehicles, the media personnel were forced to operate from the little space in the vehicles, despite the social distancing norms in place for the coronavirus.

There was hectic work going on in the premises. Most of the buildings were already pulled down, and the removal of the J and L blocks was still going on. A huge workforce was involved in the removal of all the debris getting piled up. Thousands of truckloads of debris has piled up, and is being transported to beyond Jeedimetla.

The government plans to build a new Secretariat with modern facilities in the premises despite the opposition protesting. It plans to spend about Rs 400 crore for the purpose, and finish the job by June 2, 2021.
