Ever since he became the first chief minister of the new state of Telangana, KCR has been avoiding to come to the Secretariat at Tankbund citing Vastu issues. In fact, KCR has been trying hard to build a new Secretariat, new Assembly and an international convention centre on the Bison Polo Ground in Secunderabad.
In four years as the CM, KCR has visited TS Secretariat only 25 times. This is very small number. Perhaps, no other CM in the country has visited Secretariat, a chief functionary of the state government, these many less times.
Whilst he is working from Pragati Bhavan, many MLAs and leaders of Opposition parties are apprehensive to meet the CM in Pragati Bhavan for the works in their constituencies as they’re afraid of rumours, speculations that they could be joining the TRS.
If any opposition leaders are going to Secretariat and waiting for CM’s appointment, officials in the secretariat are advising them to go and meet the CM at Pragati Bhavan. Their response is CM is available at his camp office Pragati Bhavan or his farm house. With this, even opposition leaders are dropping their plans to meet the CM and take the issues to his notice.
Meanwhile, the officials at Secretariat are also said to have lost the zeal which used to be a busy affair earlier.
