Keeping aside inter-party rivalries, Telangana Chief Minister Anumula Revanth Reddy has declared that the Congress government in the state would build on the work done by the previous governments as far as development of Hyderabad is concerned. He addressed delegates at the CII Telangana & TDF-USA conference on Education, Skill Development and Entrepreneurial Opportunities in Hyderabad on Wednesday.
“Irrespective of politics, former Chief Ministers- Dr YS Rajashekhar Reddy, Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrasekhar Rao pursued policies for development of Hyderabad. My government will not compromise on the development of Hyderabad as well as Telangana State.  The state government will continue to build on the good decisions taken by the previous regimes for the development of Hyderabad. We will move forward with the support of CII in creating education and employment opportunities in Telangana”, he said.
Revanth said that the government’s policy was to promote Telangana State so that it can compete with fast-developing countries in the world. The government would extend all kinds of support to investors and entrepreneurs, he said.
The Chief Minister said that the government was ready to develop 64 ITIs as Skill Development Centers with an outlay of Rs.2,000 crore. Consultations with stakeholders were in progress to set up Skill Universities. The government would present degree certificates to students undergoing skill development training.
The Chief Minister said that the government would set up a dry Port in Telangana soon. The proposal to develop Outer Ring Road (ORR) was opposed in the past. Now, the ORR had become a lifeline for Hyderabad.
The Chief Minister of Telangana outlined his vision for the state during the CII Telangana & TDF USA Conference on Education and Skill Development. He expressed his wish to raise Telangana to a globally competitive level by prioritizing top-tier education, enhancing employability and fostering skill development initiatives.
In his inaugural address, Revanth Reddy, revealed the government’s strategy to advance education and skilling through partnerships with industry giants like Tata, Mahindra, and Century. He mentioned that such collaborative efforts would help revolutionize the skilling landscape. The establishment of 10 skill universities in rural areas marked a significant milestone in Telangana’s skilling journey. These universities, serving as hubs of excellence, would have industry partners contributing to curriculum design with the state having regulatory oversight. Graduates would emerge well-prepared for diverse career paths, equipped with skills essential for success in today’s job market. An innovative aspect of this initiative was the elevation of skill-based courses to degree status, offering graduates unprecedented opportunities for advancement. With the flexibility to pursue competitive exams or secure employment in specialized fields, graduates will enhance their global competitiveness and employability, driving economic growth and prosperity. Revanth Reddy commended CII Telangana and Telangana Development Forum for providing a platform to address pressing issues.

Additionally, CII had released two annual reports, the India Skills Report and India Decoding Jobs, providing insights into the skilling and employment landscape. Reddy also discussed the successful implementation of dual apprenticeship activities by Telangana Technical Education, CII, and Alpla, offering a replicable model for other industries. He expressed CII’s readiness to collaborate on establishing skill development centers across the state.
