Hyderabad: The Telangana Secretariat is decked up to welcome the first Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrashekar Rao, and his team on Monday.
KCR will receive a rousing reception from Telangana employees when he enters the Secretariat for the first time after the swearing-in-ceremony at Raj Bhavan. It’s a double bonus for the employees as KCR’s entry as CM and formation of the Telangana state falls on the same day.
Welcome arches have been set up from the newly created entrance of the Telangana secretariat to the C-Block, where the Chief Minister’s Office is located.
All the four blocks allotted to the Telangana Secretariat, A, B, C and D, have been decorated and illuminated for the occasion.
The CM’s security officials on Sunday conducted a "trial run" of KCR’s convoy along the newly laid road from the Telangana secretariat entrance to the C-Block.
KCR will enter the Secretariat in his bulletproof car after participating in the official Telangana Formation Day celebrations at Parade Grounds, Secunderabad.
After disembarking from his car at the Nalla Pochamma Temple facing the CMO, KCR will perform puja at the temple and walk up to C-Block along with the Telangana employees.
The CM’s security officers on Sunday also reviewed the security arrangements to be taken while KCR walks with the large number of Telangana employees to the C-Block, which is a few yards away.
The new CM will then head to the special podium that has been built in front of the CMO and address the employees.
The Telangana employees are hoping that KCR will make an official announcement of a "special Telangana increment" for them on the occasion in recognition of their crucial role in the Telangana movement as had been announced in the TRS’ election manifesto.
Later, KCR will go to the CMO and take charge as CM. He is expected to sign his first order at 12.57 pm.
