Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said that he had no grievances over the bifurcation of erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh.
Addressing the students at the IMT Hyderabad’s 5th Convocation held here in city at its campus in Shamshabad near Rajiv Gandhi Airport, Naidu said that the bifurcation gave him a fresh start. “Every crisis is an opportunity. I have developed Hyderabad. Now we got an opportunity to build Amaravathi, which is a rare opportunity. We will make it number one 1 among the top five cities in the world,” he said.
“Don’t be complacent. Strive hard. Be innovative. You are more educated than me in management. But, I am more practical in execution than you. Complacency doesn’t work. People in Dubai are complacent. They are happy with what they have,” Naidu told 1000 plus gathering of students, parents and invited guests.
India is the best place for work in future. US, China and India are going to be economic super powers of the world. India will be number one economy very soon. You need to be innovative to come up in your life. In 1994-95 I have imagined that Knowledge Economy would be future and I saw that in Information Technology and gave it a priority. Rest is the history, he said.
Adding further he stressed upon Indian values. People in western world have mechanical relationships. In China they are permitted to have only one child. Old aged parents live separately and feel lonely. India is the only country which has stronger family bonding. Happiness comes only with the family he said. And he told the graduating students to protect values.
Addressing the media immediately after the convocation, Naidu said that AP has attracted nearly 50 prestigious institutions, both private, government and through PPP model. They include IIT, IIMs, SRM, VIT and many others. When asked if IMT would expand to AP, he said they are taking a cautious approach, he told. (INN)
