Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari said that the TRS government was NRI-friendly and would involve every person of Telangana in the development of the State, particularly in priority projects like Mission Kakatiya and Water Grid.
Mr. Srihari gave this assurance to hundreds of Telangana people residing in U.S.A., U.K., Australia and the Gulf region, who connected with him through a phone-in, organised by the Telangana Development Forum (TDF). He was happy that the TDF was taking up lot of initiatives in various fields, especially the ‘Sankalpam’, a token project aimed at helping the native handloom industry in Telangana.
Seeking their cooperation in projects like Mission Kakatiya, power generation, solar energy and drinking water to all, he said the projects would help Telangana take the growth path apart from reviving its glorious past on linking water tanks. He said 9,000 lakes would be revived this year and urged NRIs to adopt lakes in their native villages.
Talking about Warangal, the MP said he derived personal satisfaction from the fact that he was able to get the city he was representing in Parliament, the ‘Heritage City’ status. He said plans were afoot to make Warangal a textile hub.
