Keen on developing several ports in AP, says Chandrababu
Stressing that a long coastline will be crucial for development of Andhra Pradesh, state chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu today said that he was keen on developing several ports in the state.
Recalling that prime minister Narendra Modi had developed a number of ports in Gujarat, Naidu said he would also like to promote ports in Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu told a delegation of Indian Merchants Chamber from Mumbai that these ports would be useful for transportation of goods to Uttar Pradesh and Bihar upon completion, an official release said.
‘The state government is also keen on developing temple towns like Simhachalam, Srisailam and Annavaram as tourism centres,’ the release quoted the chief minister as saying.
