, 6:24 AM IST

Amaravati: Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today asked his party MPs and legislators to keep themselves abreast with technology or face the threat of becoming “outdated”.

“Update yourself with technology or else you will become outdated,” the tech-savvy Chandrababu told his party law-makers at the three-day training programme on Leadership for Realtime Governance at the K L University at Vaddeswaram here.

“If you are abreast with technology, you can be ahead of the world. Otherwise you will become outdated,” he cautioned.

Innovation has become the key in today’s world, Naidu pointed out and cited Amazon and Uber as examples of innovation and game-changing thought.

He ridiculed the Opposition in the state saying that it knew only about “innovation in corruption” and not development.

The Chief Minister said all universities in the state would be provided wi-fi facility ahead of the National Science Congress slated for January 3 in the temple town of Tirupati.

At the training programme, officials of different departments are explaining the features of the Command and Communications Centre, the CM Office Realtime Executive (CORE) Dashboard and other technology-driven applications in the government that is shifting to “realtime governance”.
