On Saturday, Rao held a meeting with the elder members of the Muslim community at Pragathi Bhavan over the construction of a new Mosque at the Secretariat and other issues. 

During the meeting, it was decided to construct one temple, two mosques that were damaged while demolishing the old secretariat buildings by the government. .

"The government would construct two Mosques, each in 750 square feet (total 1500 Sq Feet) including one Imam Quarters. The new Mosques would be constructed at the same location where they were, in the new Secretariat. The New Mosques after the construction will be handed over to the State Wakf Board," the Chief Minister said.

"Temple will also be constructed in 1,500 Square feet and the temple after the construction will be handed over to the Endowments department," Rao added.

“Since there was a demand from the Christian Community that they should also have Church in the new Secretariat, the government will construct the Church”, he further said.
