Hyderabad, February 28: Young TRS leader and Telangana Industries Minister KT Rama Rao has requested Ministry of Defence to clear the proposed ambitious project of defence industrial production corridor in the state of Telangana. In an official communication, Rao urged to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to take a final call on the much-anticipated defence production venture in order to strengthen the manufacturing sector of the state.

Earlier in this month, KTR had personal interaction with Sitharaman where he pitched hard for the mega project. The Minister shared inputs on the proposed Defence Industrial Production Corridor and urged Sitharaman to include the name of Hyderabad for the prestigious Defence Industrial Production Corridor.


Elaborating about the existing projects under the TRS government, the Minister categorically mentioned about the dynamic vibrant ecosystem which paved the ways for emerging sectors like aerospace and defence in the newly formed state.  He urged central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ratify the Defence manufacturing cluster under the banner of Make in India initiative. On the contrary, in the Union Budget defence industrial production corridors were sanctioned for Chennai, Bengaluru, and Bundelkhand.
