HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday donned the role of a ‘trainer’ and made a power-point presentation before his ministerial colleagues and lawmakers of the TDP in order to make them know about his vision for the State.
While addressing his party leaders at a day-long workshop, organised at NTR Trust Bhavan, Naidu tried to unveil his vision for the truncated AP, titled, ‘Catching up with lost opportunities - the way forward’.
According to Naidu, his government, with focus both on welfare and development, had decided to adopt a multi-pronged strategy to develop AP by embarking on ‘five grids, seven missions and four campaigns’ approach. The approach forms the much needed matrix to transform AP into Swarnandhra Pradesh.
Naidu said that of the five grids, the water grid would target utilisation of a 1,000 TMC of water to cater to the industrial, irrigation and drinking water needs of the State.
The road grid is expected to provide an integrated air, rail, water and road linkage to boost industrial growth where as the power grid is aimed at suppling 24-hour uninterrupted power.
Through the AP natural gas grid, steps would be taken to extend LNG or LPG pipelines to all parts of the State.
The ‘four campaign’ planning is related to agriculture, education, poverty alleviation and environmental needs of AP.
