VISAKHAPATNAM: Putting to rest the apprehension of port city residents that Amaravatiis the focus of the TDP government at the cost of Visakhapatnam, IT minister Nara Lokesh made it clear here on Thursday that it is only Vizag that can drive the growth of the economy of Andhra Pradesh.
“Vizag is going to be the important growth driver for Andhra Pradesh. There are no second thoughts about it,” Lokesh said while addressing a gathering of senior bureaucrats, public representatives, educationists, entrepreneurs and other eminent personalities of the city at an event to mark the launch of the refreshed edition of the Vizag.
“The city is performing well on the Pharma front already; the MedTech Zone is coming up here. We want to turn Vizag into a vibrant IT hub. In mid-October, we’ll be launching the Millennium Towers which will be an iconic landmark for IT in the city,” Lokesh said and added that the Kapulauppada IT layout is fast nearing completion.
