AP To Be Made Technology Hub, Naidu
Amaravati: Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said that the state would become a technology hub in the years to come.
Briefing the media on Saturday upon his return from US, Naidu said he had mobilized a few leading technology companies to have their operations in Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu said that the technology companies in US have highest standards and a good number of them have Telugu NRIs in higher positions. He said his interactions with the Telugu NRIs helped him get clearances from several IT companies to have their operations in the state.
Naidu also claimed that his visit to US had given him the highest satisfaction, as he was able to project the state as the best option for them to invest, and asserted that several companies have accepted his invitation.
The major breakthrough was the plans to have solar and wind power storage facilities, he said. This would give an opportunity for the state to not to increase the power tariff in the future, as the state would be power surplus, he said.
The chief minister reiterated that his initiatives in 1998 in the power sector were now paying dividends, despite the previous Congress government destroying the sector.
Naidu took a strong exception to the opposition party in the state for sending emails to US officials creating a law and order problem. He said that the Telugu speaking people were disturbed with the emails. Without naming the YSR Congress as responsible for it, the chief minister pointed an accusing finger at the party, and asserted that the state police would expose them.
The chief minister also took a dig at Jagan Mohan Reddy’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi without an agenda. He wanted to know why Jagan kept the meeting in dark till the last minute. He said that Jagan must have met prime minister to seek his help in rescuing him from the CBI cases as the Central Government is going tough with such cases.
Naidu also referred to the hawala case unearthed in Visakhapatnam and said that people were drawing inspiration from the corrupt leadership of Jagan Mohan Reddy. He asserted that his government would not spare them.
