Telangana can fuel PM Gati Shakti Programme says KTR:- The state of Telangana and the government have not been getting enough support from the Centre. There are differences on the paddy procurement issue and Telangana Chief Minister KCR wanted the leaders to make loud protests so that the news reaches the Centre. Telangana Industries Minister KT Rama Rao demanded the Centre to offer incentives for the best performing states in the country. KTR participated in the PM Gati Shakti South Zone conference in a virtual manner in Hyderabad. KTR highlighted the achievements of Telangana during his speech in the fields of handlooms, textiles, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, power and others.
"35 percent of the global vaccine production is from Hyderabad. The capital of Telangana has been a strong place for the ecosystem, the Centre sanctioned the Defence Corridor to Bundelkhand and there is no ecosystem that exists. Telangana is also a major hub for the defense institutions like DRDL, DRDO, RSI, ANURAG and others. A cargo rail network has to be provided for Telangana to connect different ports. Telangana will set up dry ports if the additional financial incentives are provided for Telangana. The Centre has to reconsider increasing the frequency of the trains from Hyderabad to several Indian ports. States like Telangana should be encouraged to benefit the growth rate of the country as the state has been significantly contributing to the export target of the country" told KTR. The meeting was chaired by Union Minister for Roads, Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari.
