Is KTR's Big News A Disappointment?

Is KTR's Big News A Disappointment?

There is a popular old Telugu film song: “…. Thondara padi oka koyila munde koosindi..” (A cuckoo has cooed much before the season has arrived). This seems to be applicable to Telangana Information Technology Minister K T Rama Rao.

On Tuesday, he made an interesting comment on twitter that he has a big news to share; but he wants to keep it a suspense till Thursday. Though there were various speculations on what that good news could be; finally, the guess that everybody endorsed was that computer giant Apple is going to set up its first iOS App design and Development Centre in Hyderabad.

If it materialises, it is really big news for the people of Telangana. But unfortunately, on Wednesday, Apple has announced that its first iOS App Design and Development Centre will be set up in Bengaluru. Apple CEO Tim Cook who is visiting India apparently made this announcement in Mumbai in the afternoon. 

“With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we are giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world,” he said in a statement.

The iOS App Design and Development Accelerator is expected to open in early 2017. Apple’s new development centre is an “initiative to support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India’s iOS developer community,” says the company.

Apparently, Apple has decided to open an innovation centre and mapping centre in Hyderabad. But that is an old announcement and there is no surprise element in that.

So, is there any other big news, Mr KTR?
