Thiruvananthapuram | The inauguration of the new Secretariat Annexe, which was scheduled for this evening, has been postponed. A decision to this effect was taken by the Cabinet. The new date is not announced.

The decision comes in the wake of a sit-in stir by Opposition MLAs in protest against not inviting Opposition leader V.S. Achutanandan to the inaugural function.

V.S. had alleged that the building was constructed without conforming to Fire and safety rules. He also stated that the building is being inaugurated hastily without receiving the certificate of the Fire Force to help the flat mafia.

The construction of the Secretariat’s second Annexe was started during the previous LDF Government, which sanctioned the funds and laid stone for the same.
