“If you are abreast with technology, you can be ahead of the world. Otherwise you will become outdated,” he cautioned. In his tweet, the chief minister laid emphasis on the use of IoT, big data, and analytics to solve state problems in real-time. Naidu further called on innovative ideas and said that Andhra Pradesh was utilising optimum technology to become digitally literate. He stressed that the state has natural resources like water, mineral wealth, human resources, road, rail and air connectivity to establish the units. Naidu aims to achieve the targets within a few years using technology, something that other countries have done in decades.

Earlier this year, Naidu launched the first phase of Fiber Grid project to provide broadband connectivity in Andhra Pradesh as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi s Digital India initiative.

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. ALSO READ: Change in mindset required for Digital India to yield benefits: Sam Pitroda
