New Delhi: Activist and local Congress workers in Hyderabad staged a protest against Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's decision to build a Secretariat at Bison Polo grounds. All protesters were detained.

“The CM is killing this green space only for Vaastu. The ground has so many trees. We will not let this happen. We will not allow him to waste tax payers’ money,” said Congress leader and one of the protesters Krishank.

The Chief Minister’s decision to shift the present Secretariat to a Vaastu-complaint location, has been drawing criticism from all sides. Not only the Secretariat, the government has decided to construct new Legislative Assembly as well.
