KTR, in a letter recently to Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, said the State government had made numerous appeals during the past six years to sanction funds for ITIR
Hyderabad: At a time when the State government has been persuading the Centre to provide a scheme or initiative in place of Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) in Hyderabad to ensure that cities like Hyderabad continue to flourish and provide employment to youngsters, BJP State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar found fault with the TRS leadership for trying to shift the blame onto the Centre for the State not getting the ITIR.
Sanjay, in a letter to Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Tuesday, blamed the State government for not getting the project. The Central government, he claimed, took the initiative and sanctioned two Greenfield electronic manufacturing clusters in 914 acre in Hyderabad.
“Eight companies have already invested Rs 1,113 crore, providing employment to 3,172 people. Is this incorrect?” he asked. IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao, in a letter recently to Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, said the State government had made numerous appeals during the past six years to sanction funds for ITIR.
He said the Chief Minister too had appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on multiple occasions, both personally and through official letters to provide assistance to ITIR project. “As IT Minister of the State, I also met you and requested for release of funds for the ITIR project. Unfortunately, there was no response whatsoever from the Central government on this important initiative,” Rama Rao had said in his letter.
