Making the residuary state of AP No. 1 in the country as part of the Digital India programme is one of the goals Naidu has set for himself. The aim is to ensure that every household in the State is connected with high speed broadband.

Improving air connectivity between important cities in AP to Hyderabad and other destinations in the country (for which he proposed reduction in ATF charges paid by airlines) is another. Apart from Civil Aviation Minister and officals, Naidu also had a meeting with CEOs of some private airlines regarding better connectivity.

Naidu, along with a delegation, plans to visit Japan during November-December to attract investment and also study if some of the best practices followed there could be replicated in AP.

What He Sought from Union Ministers

Arun Jaitley: Additional resource allocation for building capital and to bridge gap between revenue and expenditure. Also wanted FRBM regulations to be relaxed to enable AP to borrow more, if required, to meet both immediate and long-term commitments.

Uma Bharathi: Wanted the special vehicle for Polavaram project to be created to hasten execution. Sought completion of project in a maximum time frame of 4 years from now.

Nitin Gadkari: Sought Delhi’s help for linking Rayalaseema with the existing common capital - Hyderabad - and Vijayawada. For example, laying a new road between Kurnool and Guntur will reduce the distance by 300 km. Likewise, Rayalaseema cities/towns should be linked to Chennai, Bangalore, Krishnapatnam (port) and Hyderabad.
