The decision has been taken during YS Jagan's meeting with the Information Technology, Electronics and Communication Department. YS Jagan also wanted the system of volunteers, ward secretariats to be tech-savy.
YS Jagan said that the system would help root out corruption and hence it needed a strong IT network. The three smart cities idea has been taken after YSRCP kept the plans of Amaravati on hold. The Chief Minister said that the single-window system had been introduced for transparency in sanctioning of industries. Land, water and power would be provided at nominal rates for setting up industries. YS Jagan slammed Chandra Babu Naidu for making false claims during his time and attacking YSRCP.
