Visakhapatnam, May 10, 2005
The Chief Minister, YS Rajasekhara Reddy said on Tuesday that the Satyam Computers’ local centre would provide direct employment to five thousand people and indirect jobs to above five times in the next coming three to five years.
He said the same while addressing a public meeting after laying the foundation stone for the local centre at the old Infectious Diseases Hospital site. He said that the software company was given seven acres of land and it would invest Rs.150 crores to develop the facility. He said that that while 1229 IT companies in Hyderabad alone were exporting Rs.8300 crores worth of products, 37 IT companies in the city were exporting to the tune of 70 Crores.
IT Companies like Wipro, and Satyam could boost the exports from Visakhapatnam region and contribute to its development. The Chief Minister laid foundation stone of LV Prasad Eye Institute near old Dairy Farm on Tuesday evening. He said the Government allotted five acres of land for the institute at a cheaper rate with the hope that it would provide medical care free to the poor patients.
He laid foundation stone for Mega housing scheme under the Rajiv Gruhakalpa at Paradesipalem. As many as 12000 houses would come up under the first phase of the scheme and the foundation was laid for 5000 houses to be taken up immediately. Reacting to the plea of local MLA T.Gurumurty Reddy to convert Madhurawada area into separate municipality, the Chief Minister assured that the Government would examine the issue.
A tense situation prevailed for some time at the public meeting at the TB Hospital when some CPI workers tried to disrupt the meeting and immediately police intervened and could control the situation to normalcy.
