Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy had made his debut entry into the State Secretariat at Velagapudi this morning. Though the buildings have come up two years ago and he was attending the Assembly session adjacent to these buildings, he did not even turn his eyes towards these buildings till now. He and his party had made several allegations of corruption against these buildings, particularly on the amount that was quoted for the construction of these buildings. He saw huge corruption in the contract and the secretariat works would be one of his major action on the reverse tendering that his government is planning, besides the irrigation projects.
The officials have made some changes to the chief minister’s office in the first block of the five blocks secretariat buildings. The officials have also made some changes to the CMO in the Assembly building, which he is scheduled to enter on May 12, when the Assembly meets to administer the oath to the newly-elected MLAs.
In the Secretariat block, where his predecessor, Chandrababu Naidu, presided over for the past two years, his own people and officials have made the required changes. The furniture that Chandrababu Naidu used those days was shifted. The doors that Naidu used were shut and new doors were opened, to suit to his type of vastu.
After his entry, he is forming his cabinet and Governor ESL Narasimhan had already arrived to administer the oath to the new Cabinet ministers. Then, Jaganmohan Reddy would be presiding over his new cabinet for the first time. It is to be seen what new decisions are in store from Jaganmohan Reddy and his government.
