The Telangana High Court on Wednesday asked the petitioners in the case challenging the demolition of Irrum Manzil to construct a new Legislative Assembly complex, why a new Assembly building should not be constructed in a new State like Telangana, which was formed after a prolonged struggle.
The Court also pointed out to the petitioner that new Assembly buildings were being constructed in several States in the country.
The HC posed this question while hearing the petitions filed by different people opposing the decision of the State government to demolish Irrum Manzil, a heritage building, to build a new Assembly complex.
Responding to the question, the petitioners submitted to the Court that they didn't have any objection if the State government built a new Assembly building in an open place, and that they were only opposed to the decision of the government to demolish Irrum Manzil.
Following this, the HC asked the HMDA counsel if it had the powers to demolish a heritage structure, and adjourned the case to Thursday.
