Selfish Policies Of TRS Hit IT Invesments

The selfish and wrong priorities of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government has resulted in the failure of the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR), which was approved by previous UPA Government with a huge investment.

According to the Telangana Congress party’s official spokesman Dasoju Sravan, IT Minister K T Rama Rao had sabotaged the ITIR project, which could have provided direct and indirect employment to lakhs of Telangana youth and deliberately neglected it.

The ITIR was conceived by the then Congress Government in undivided AP in 2013.

"ITIR was approved by UPA Government due to the persuasive efforts of Congress leaders of Telangana. After a lot of research and investigation, the ITIR's Detailed Project Report (DPR) was prepared and the same was approved by UPA Government," he informed.

He questioned the audacity of TRS Government to revise the DPR of the ITIR project.

"Why was revision of DPR was not discussed in the Assembly? Why such unilateral decision of revising already approved DPR?" he asked.

Sravan said that the previous Congress Government had already identified 50,000 acres of land in five zones in and around Hyderabad for the ITIR projects.

“It was planned to change the fortunes of not only the youth of Telangana, but would have become global destination for IT and Electronic Sector. With ITIR, the Telangana would have emerged as China or Korea or Silicon Valley of USA. But KTR Deliberately Failed ITIR because of his negligence and false priorities," he alleged.

He said that the tone and tenor of the letter written by KTR to GoI is only to indulge in mere blame game. It also shows that he was shrugging off from his responsibility.

He opined that the KTR's letter implicitly indicates that he wants an official communication from GoI that the ITIR project is permanently shelved so that he could escape from his failure.
