The chief minister of Telangana today expressed his regret over the damage caused to the temples and mosques at the secretariat premises in Hyderabad during the demolition of the old secretariat building. Together with this, he assured that he would build new temples and mosques to make up for the mistake.

KCR said that he came to know of this when after debris fell on religious places when the multi-storied building adjoining them were brought down. KCR said in an official statement “I feel sorry about the incident.
It should not have happened.
The government’s intention is to build a new complex by demolishing the old buildings without causing any damage to the temple or the mosque,”.  Together with the statement, he said that the damaged places of worship will be built back, with the new secretariat building.

He was quoted saying that the state of Telangana is a secular state and will continue the secular spirit whatever comes. He said that the incident happened unexpectedly and that everyone should understand this in the same light without any prejudice.
