- Media Advisor Parakala Prabhakar alleges that Telangana government is resorting to “cheap tactics” to defame AP
- Clarifies that AP is better placed in terms of ease of doing business than the sibling Telugu State, and there is no comparison between both the States
“Unless you hack the website, you cannot know what information we have provided,” he said. He said the servers of both the States are entirely different and payment gate for Telangana is bill desk and for Andhra Pradesh it is cyber treasury. Prabhakar accused the Telangana government of creating false rumours against AP.
He felt that Telangana Industries Minister, K T Rama Rao, might be misled by the officials or was doing it deliberately to defame AP.
He clarified that AP was ranked second and Telangana government ranked13th in easing of doing business ranking, and said that there was no comparison between two States. “The AP government will be happy if Telangana government progresses in terms of ease of doing business," he added.
The Advisor to the Government said 29 States were asked to prepare answers for 340 questions related to ease of doing business by the end of June 30. He said AP had filed information on all the parameters and did not approach the Department of Industrial Policy Promotion after the deadline.
Responding to a query, Prabhakar said the government would not take legal action against such “cheap tactics” of Telangana. He further said that complaint lodged by the Telangana government against AP over stealing data would be dealt with by the Union government.
