Centre Misusing Investigation Agencies: Minister KTR

Encourage Progressive States Like Telangana: KTR to Centre

Hyderabad, June 22 (Hydnow): IT Minister KT Rama Rao has urged the Centre to encourage the progressive States like Telangana and extend all help by offering incentives.

He was speaking at a program after laying a foundation stone for VEM Technologies Pvt. Ltd.’s Integrated Defence Systems at NIMZ, Zaheerabad in Sangareddy district on Wednesday.

The Minister said the State government had asked the Centre to grant a defence industrial production corridor between Hyderabad and Bengaluru and conveyed it the proposed corridor would help in using each other’s strengths for value creation due to the presence of a set ecosystem.


However, ignoring the plea of Telangana State, the Centre has sanctioned it to Bundlekhand, where no such ecosystem is in place. At least now, the union government should keep aside politics and encourage the progressive States like Telangana,” KTR said.

VEM Technologies is investing Rs 1,000 crore in Zaheerabad to set up an Integrated Defence Systems unit. It is coming up in 511 acre at the National Investment and Manufacturing Zone (NIMZ) at Zaheerabad. The project is expected to create direct employment to 2,000 people and indirect employment to 4,000.

VEM is a renowned Defence and Aerospace company that offers end-to-end technology solutions and systems for various weapon systems for land, air and naval applications.


VEM, which already has two units in Hyderabad, will use this for carrying out defence works in Zaheerabad.

MP BB Patil, MLAs Manik Rao, Kranti Kiran, Bhupal Reddy, MLC Seri Subash Reddy, TSIIC Chairman G Balamallu, Zilla Parishad Chairman P. Manjusree Jaipal Reddy, principal secretary Jjayesh Ranjan, district collector Dr A Sharath were present on the occasion. (Hydnow)

    Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits

    I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
