Telangana IT Minister KT Rama Rao has blamed the Congress led UPA government and BJP led NDA government for failing to allocate sufficient funds for Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) project that was proposed in Hyderbad.
Speaking in the Assembly in question hour KTR said that ITIR policy has been prepared by previous UPA government but no funds were allocated. After BJP came to power, the project was overlooked. He also met personally the then IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad who ruled out enforcement of the new IT policy since the NDA did not consider the ITIR as viable option to promote IT industry.
Adding despite the odds, KTR said, the Telangana government promoted IT in a big way by bringing new IT projects. About expanding the IT sector to Tier II and III cities in Telangana, the minister that IT tower in Karimnagar district will open in October and in Khammam, the tower will start functioning from November or December this year.
