The just concluded partnership summit held in Visakhapatnam by Confederation of Indian Industry in collaboration with the Andhra Pradesh government and Union commerce ministry was aimed more at giving a boost to the image of chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, rather than bringing any big benefits to the state industrially.
It was Naidu everywhere at the summit and almost all the sessions had him addressing the delegates.
He was giving power point presentations, interacting with big people from various foreign countries and overseeing the signing of MoUs.
Except Union minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju and state minister N Amaranath Reddy, and of course IT minister Nara Lokesh, no other minister was seen on the dais in any of the sessions and addressing the meetings.
In a way, the Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu managed to create an impression that he is a man of vision and mission and is working hard to get investments to the state.
He could get appreciation from every big industrialist like Gautam Adani, Vedanta Agarwal and many others.
It does not matter whether there would be any big investments to the state or not, but Naidu managed to hog the limelight and ensured that he got a huge coverage in the media.
