Hyderabad: Dr YS Rajashekhar Reddy State Museum, which is a heritage site of Jain and Buddhist history and sculpture, is in dire straits.

A big crack on the wall of the museum gate stares at visitors. Peels of plaster of Paris falling off from walls is common sight all through. It’s a mark of sheer negligence on the part of museum authorities.

Deepak, a local resident who visited the museum on Friday said, “Walls of the museum are lusterless, some structures are totally damaged and there is no proper maintenance of building.

I am disappointed. It requires immediate repairs to avoid any catastrophe.” Jain Gallery, one of the centres of attraction, is also in a bad state.

The roof top has been covered with plastic sheets to protect the terrace and fractured walls, which needs immediate attention. A small structure near Jain Sculptural Block looks like an abandoned monument.
