Telangana, January 10, 2017: The construction of two major religious convention centres in this 425-year-old city, Christian Bhavan and Sikh Congregation Centre, remains a dream for the minority communities in Telangana. The projects have been held up for more than two years.

Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao laid the foundation stone for the Christian Bhavan at Mahendra Hills, but the project ran into rough weather as the land was mired in legal controversies. Unidentified persons removed the foundation stone following which the members from the Twin City Christian Youth Fellowship reached the spot and a booked a complaint with the police.

The entire plan, including designs for construction of a tall tower, a church and a community hall for marriages and functions, was prepared and approved by the chief minister, but with another party moving the court, the project could not take off for the last two years.

“Yes, there has been a delay but it was due to non-availability of clean land, without any legal problems. Finally, the government has allotted two acres of land for the project. It will take off soon,” said Christian Minority Finance Corporation managing director V Victor.
