Secunderabad: The members of ‘Save Bison Polo Ground’ are leaving no stone unturned to make their point. After sending a petition carrying 800 signatures to the Prime Minister, the members have now written to the chosen architect Hafeez Contractor to prevail upon the Telangana Chief Minister not to go ahead with a plan to construct a secretariat at Bison Polo Grounds.
The Architects’ Association of Hyderabad has written a letter to Hafeez Contractor. Many members of the group are also architects and have shot a letter to the noted contractor.
The shrill against the proposed construction of a secretariat and a cultural centre at Bison Polo Grounds is growing by the day. Shireen Baria, Supreme Court lawyer says, “Technically, the state government is yet to get a green signal from the centre.”
Recently, a Public Interest Litigation was filed in the Hyderabad High Court, challenging the reported decision of the centre to use Bison Polo Grounds for construction of secretariat. The PIL was filed by former Director-General of Police M V Bhaskar Rao, former cricketer Vivek Jaisimha, chartered accountant T Bharadwaj and former squadron leader Anil Bhalla.
