A major decision was taken for construction of a community building for backward classes on 75 acres of land in Hyderabad at Rs 70 crore. Asked whether the issue of Assembly dissolution was also discussed, Deputy CM Kadiam Srihari said they briefed the media on the decisions taken as per the agenda of the meeting. "There will be another cabinet meeting soon to take more decisions."
