Telangana Chief Minister K Chandasekhar Rao today laid foundation stone for a building complex that would house the Chief Minister’s official residence, office and a meeting hall.
The foundation stone was laid, at a site adjacent to the present CM’s camp office, a release from Rao’s office said.
The new building complex is being constructed as the present camp office of the Chief Minister proved to be totally inadequate to hold meetings, meet visitors and for other government purposes, it said.
The present CM camp office does not have space to accommodate even a group of 500 people and for parking cars of VIP visitors, the release said.
The government has decided to construct the Chief Minister’s new official residence with a conference hall that can accommodate at least 1,000 people, it added.
The government has approved the proposals made in this regard by the Roads and Buildings department.
The new building complex, including CM’s Official residence, office and meeting hall would be built in an area of 8.9 acres, the release added.
