IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao today said 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.
Having got a smart city status by the Centre, Warangal is all set to get Rs 2000 crore for development, he said adding that related issues and problems will be solved. He was participating at a program wherein Marri Yadava Reddy took charge as Kakatiya Urban Development Authority chairman. Speaking on the occasion, the minister said that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao shows special affection towards Warangal and a few more leaders will get such nominated posts. Besides a key institution on the lines of HMDA, the city will get IT and other industries to offer jobs to local youth. He promised to develop Warangal which is 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. He vowed to develop Warangal city as global city after Hyderabad.
KTR flayed the Congress leaders for making false criticism on 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 to come up with development programs. Despite facing problems the government is making rapid strides and achieving targets. Of the 60 lakh bales of cotton being produced in Telangana, they are able to export 50 lakh bales, after consumption of 10 lakh bales, he added. (NSS)
