Hero MotoCorp Ltd, the country’s largest two-wheeler maker announced to setup its project in Andhra Pradesh. The company has been allotted a 600-acre site in Satyaveedu located adjacent to the Sri City multi-use project.It was a big achievement for Chandrababu government to clinch the deal by defeating neighboring states Telangana and Karnataka.Chandrababu efforts should be lauded and the dedication he has shown was unbelievable and it proves the administration skills of Naidu yet again.
According to sources, the Hero company was approached by the representatives of both Governments (TS & AP) after it had announced its intent to set up a new plant in South India.They even surveys some land in Telangana state and many thought that AP was almost lost the project to Telangana government.
After some days they were in Karnataka’s Dharwada. At last they signed an MOU with Andhra Pradesh and closed the deal. What happened behind the scenes? How Chandra Babu Naidu pulled off this spectacular deal? Here is the story revealed by a Minister in Chandra Babu’s cabinet.
“CBN was first to approach Hero Motocorp with a good proposal. The company people were okayed with our proposals but the details of the deal offered was leaked to the Telangana government and KCR sent a higher official to the company Delhi Headquarters with an even better deal. After some days Sidda Ramaiah (Karnataka CM) adopted similar strategy and tried to take away the company.We almost thought both telugu states lost the deal to kannada state’’ .
‘’However behind the scenes Chandra Babu was doing some thing different. CM was working on the deal with utmost secrecy. He chose to work from his home after office hours with only 2 IAS officers knowing the complete details. No one including us (ministers) know that he is working on the project.Just before the day Babu sent the deal details to respective ministers and asked them to sign.Finally the prestigious project is in AP but the only thing is we had to shell out extra benefits to the company due to the mad race between the states” Any doubts about Naidu’s administration?
