HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu reviewed the procedures to be followed for effective implementation of the seven missions the state government has embarked upon to achieve comprehensive development in every sector.

He held prolonged discussions over it on Tuesday with special chief secretary (planning) SP Tucker, advisor (communication) to government Parakala Prabhakar and other higher officials.

The seven missions are social sector, primary, Skill development, infrastructure, industry, service sector and urban development.

Given the vast revenue-earning potential of the tourism sector, the government is determined to make maximum use of the available tourism resources in the state which is blessed with a long coastline and several ancient shrines visited by several lakhs of pilgrims annually.

Reviewing the measures need to be taken to boost tourism in the state, Naidu wanted the tourism sector to be considered a priority sector, given its potential for not only generating revenues but also for generating job opportunities.

He emphasised the need for focus on development of beaches as attractive tourist destinations along with promoting temple tourism in the state. Special chief secretary (tourism) Chandana Khan and others attended the meeting.

A group of farmers’ leaders led by Chengal Reddy met Naidu at his camp office to thank him for the loan waiver. They hailed the measures being taken by Naidu to bail out the farmers who are in distress.

Naidu celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr, marking the conclusion of the holy month of Ramzan, with Muslim brethren at his residence here. A group of Muslims from his native district of Chittoor visited him on the occasion. He hailed the festival as one that promotes communal harmony and brotherhood.
