Referring to the floods in Chennai which hit the IT sector, the minister said Hyderabad has the unique opportunity as no other city is as safe as Hyderabad. “No other city is shielded from natural calamities like cyclones, typhoons and earthquakes. We have to seize this opportunity and work for it,” he said.
KTR, as the minister is popularly known, said with the initiatives taken by the government during last 16 to 18 months, Hyderabad had re-asserted itself as one of the premier destinations of IT in the country. “But we are not completely content with this. We have bigger plans. Multiple initiatives have been taken and with the kind of planning and policy support, we hope that Hyderabad will be the top destination in the country in couple of years,” said KTR, who is son of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
