HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's plans for a state-of-the-art Secretariat complex has received a shot in the arm on Thursday with real estate major Shapoorji Pallonji Group offering to build it. 
The company also expressed its willingness to construct the mega cultural hub, Telangana Kala Bharathi and a better road network for the city. In all, the company offered to invest Rs 20,000 crore in various projects in Hyderabad. The offer came at a meeting of its chairman Shapoor P Mistry with the chief minister here on Thursday. 
Telangana government and the company's representatives will meet soon to discuss the terms and conditions of the firm's involvement in the government's plans to revamp the city. 
Chandrasekhar Rao explained to the company delegation about the projects his government has planned for Hyderabad, including the construction of Telangana Kala Bharati complex. He told them that the projects conceived so far would need about Rs 20,000 crore and these include improving the road network, construction of grade separators, flyovers, an integrated Secretariat complex and an ultra-modern police control room.
