There is an important update about the under-construction Telangana Secretariat. Minister KTR said that it is getting ready to start. Minister KTR said that CM KCR’s secretariat will be opened soon. KTR also tweeted about two other mega projects. “Telangana Martyrs’ Memorial – 125 feet statue of Ambedkar will be inaugurated by the Chief Minister soon,” he disclosed.
However, there are more negative comments on KTR’s tweet. Some netizens reacted strongly. “The names are suiting the purpose, but are any of the contracts given to Madigas, SCs, STs, and minorities?” someone questioned. While, someone else said: Names on the walls are ours, while the person who lives inside it is you! Some asked if the Secretariat could be named Komuram Bheem or Professor Jayashankar.
“You keep proudly taking the names in the form of Immortal Heroes Memorial, Ambedkar Statue, and Secretariat, can you tell me how many Madigas are in the Telangana Cabinet with the same pride?” others questioned in this manner. While some commented that choosing Ambedkar’s name for your politics shows weakness in your conviction and commitment to Telangana. Some satirized KTR with photos explaining the problems in the state.
Chief Minister KCR recently decided to name the new secretariat after Ambedkar. The Chief Secretary of the Government has been directed to take measures in that regard. The Chief Minister said that the state legislature has also passed a unanimous resolution and he will soon write a letter to the Prime Minister regarding the same. KCR is demanding the central government consider the Telangana government’s appeal and name the new parliament building after Ambedkar.
