Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) members today staged a protest in the Lok Sabha over the issue of transfer of defense land
Reddy said the state government has agreed to it, but no action has been taken in this regard
Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) members today staged a protest in the Lok Sabha over the issue of transfer of defense land to the state government. Jithender Reddy (TRS) said the state government has been seeking defense land for building a secretariat in Secunderabad as the existing one has become a "pigeon hole".
He said the land was also needed for the widening of National Highway-4 and State Highway-1 to clear several bottlenecks. The state government, he said, took up the matter with the then Defence Minister Arun Jaitley, who said compensatory land measuring over 500 acres must be transferred to the Defence Ministry, and an additional Rs 95 crore.
