Naidu Elevates Son Lokesh By Another Step
Amaravati: The efforts to promote Nara Lokesh are continuing in a phased manner. Having inducted him into the Cabinet and giving him the key portfolios of IT and Panchayat Raj, the AP government had issued a new GO extending membership to Lokesh in the State Industrial Promotion Board, which is responsible for industries promotion and clearing permissions.
The Board chaired by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has ministers as members and Chief Secretary as member-secretary. After the reshuffle of the cabinet and the subsequent change of the portfolios of some of the Ministers, who are members of this Board, the government had issued GO incorporating the names of the new members. Taking advantage of the situation, the government had also extended the membership to Lokesh, an elevation that gives the young Minister to have control over the new industries coming to the State.
The board has Ministers Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, P Narayana, S Chandramohan Reddy, C Adinarayana Reddy, K Kala Venkata Rao and Pitani Satyanarayana. The board meets every month and clears the issues concerning to the industrial policy, licences and other issues
