Hyderabad: Y Sujana Chowdary, Union Minister of State for Science and Technology, has called for sustainable social infrastructure as the country is in transition mode towards new India by 2022. Expressing concern over demographic divide, the union minister said India was growing at 6-7 per cent annually and the higher growth rate would ensure comprehensive economic development.

Speaking at the second annual HMTV Business Excellence Awards function coinciding with ninth anniversary of HMTV here on Monday, Chowdary advised entrepreneurs to evolve a roadmap for the country in education, health, technology, etc.

Highlighting the funding crunch for small entrepreneurs, Chowdary said: “Mudra loans are available to small entrepreneurs and startups. Budding entrepreneurs should turn failures as stepping stones to success. I don’t agree with the concern that technology will kill jobs, but it adds to employment generation.”

Chowdary along with T Harish Rao, Telangana Major Irrigation Minister, presented the HMTV Business Excellence Awards in 15 categories. Speaking on the occasion, Harish Rao said: “By developing by-products in the agriculture, famers’ income can be enhanced. 24-hour power supply, water facility and policy reforms taken up by Telangana government are encouraging industry and agriculture.”

Everything can’t be related to GDP, Rao said, while highlighting the importance of agriculture that it may be 12 per cent of GDP, but over 70 per cent of population depends upon it. “That’s why, the KCR-led government gives top priority to agriculture and other sectors that contribute to social development,” adds Rao.

Considering the water requirements of industry, Rao said, “10 per cent from all the irrigation projects has been allocated for the industry. Land, power, water and government approvals are easily available to budding entrepreneurs.”

Earlier, welcoming the guests on behalf of K Vaman Rao, Chairman, Kapil Group, Krishna Sagar Rao, BJP spokesperson and organisation strategist at Hyderabad Media House, said: “The objective of awards is to encourage efforts put in by entrepreneurs in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Manufacturing and services sectors contribute 83 per cent to GDP and play a vital role in job creation. Kapil Group sticks to core values, zero compromise and employee development. And its media arms are no exception to this.”
