Telangana Government received a rare honour. The Youngest State was named as 'Promising State of the Year' in the CNBC-TV18 Indian Business Leader Awards. IT Minister K Taraka Rama Rao received the award from Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday.
Accepting the prestigious award, KTR told: 'Many thanks to all on the wishes. Not only is Telangana most promising, but will also be the most delivering state. Telangana is the youngest state. Still, Development is happening at a rapid phase because of KCR's exceptional leadership. We have introduced new policies, whether its Welfare Programmes, IT, Irrigation & Industries. That's the reason behind the rise of Telangana state'.
The first-time Minister expressed confidence that Telangana will emerge as No.1 in the country very soon. He opined States were competing to improve the standards of people and advises from experts need to be taken into confidence for better results. KTR feels Telangana would benefit in the coming years if GST Bill became a law and centre implements the one nation-one tax without fail.
