The Telangana High Court today gave its green signal for the construction of a new Secretariat complex in place of the existing one.

A division bench of the HC comprising Chief Justice R S Chauhan and Justice A Abhishek Reddy dismissed a batch of five Public Interest Litigations filed between 2016 and 2019 on the issue by several prominent people of the state including Congress MP A Revanth Reddy and MLC T Jeevan Reddy, and the founder Vice-President of the Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) P L Visweswar Rao, and Forum for Good Governance.

The decision of the court has paved the way for the construction of the proposed new secretariat complex.

While pronouncing its judgement, the HC said that the decision of the state cabinet on the construction of a new secretariat complex was legal. It agreed with the arguments of the counsel for the state government that there should not be any interference of the judiciary in the policy decisions of the elected state government. The counsel also told the High Court that the existing buildings were devoid of the requisite infrastructure and that some of them had reached the stage where they needed to be demolished.

In their petitions, the petitioners urged the High Court to declare the decision of the state government to demolish the existing secretariat which was still quite stable, as illegal, arbitrary, unjustified, unfair, unreasonable and unconstitutional, and issue orders to restrain the state government from going ahead with its decision as also set aside the resolution of the state cabinet.
