KTR vows to develop Warangal a la Hyderabad
Hyderabad: IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao said on Wednesday that the government will develop Warangal city on a par with Hyderabad as it played a key role in statehood movement. A new textile policy will soon be launched and Warangal will witness rapid growth through a new textile park, the minister said. He vowed to develop Warangal city as global city after Hyderabad.
Participating in a programme wherein Marri Yadava Reddy took charge as Kakatiya Urban Development Authority chairman, KTR said having got a smart city status, Warangal is all set to get Rs 2,000 crores for development. The minister said since Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has special affection for Warangal, a few more leaders will get such nominated posts.
Besides a key institution on the lines of HMDA, Warangal will get IT and other industries to offer jobs to local youth. KTR promised to develop Warangal which is the birth place of Kaloji Narayana Rao and Prof Jayashankar who were behind the statehood movement. Some leaders are yet to get posts, justice was done to some and justice is yet to be done to others, he said. The leaders should wait as the chief minister is ready to fill up some posts in future.
KTR flayed Congress leaders for making false allegations against the government which is giving top priority to the welfare sector. “Our government gives equal importance to agriculture, irrigation and others with a focus on inclusive growth,” he said and asked the people to have faith in the government. Despite facing problems, the government is achieving targets. Of the 60 lakh bales of cotton being produced in Telangana, the state is able to export 50 lakh bales, he added.
