Visakhapatnam: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N. Chandrababu Naidu unveiled his Vision-2047 document. The former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu believes that if five strategies are adopted, India can lead the world while the Telugus will play a major role in global development.
He released the Vision-2047 document at a gathering in the port city to mark the Independence Day, Naidu felt that India is expected to be the third largest country in the world in economic growth while in other sectors the nation will be growing to the number two level by 2047.
But if five most important strategies are adopted, India will be the global leader, he mentioned in the document. “Experts say it is the Decade of India but we need to convert it as the Century of India,” said Naidu, who as the chief minister of united Andhra Pradesh had released the Vision-2020 document.
The first strategy for Vision-2020 is energy, which he feels is a game-changer. He recalled that when power sector reforms were adopted in the late 90s, Andhra Pradesh was a leader. The cost of solar power dropped from Rs 8 per unit to Rs 2 with the solar wind and pumped energy generation system adopted by the state.
“Even now we will try to reduce the power charges by 30 per cent by setting up hydrogen and ammonia hubs along with research centres in various parts of the state,” the TDP supremo explained.
The second strategy is achieving water secure India. Predicting more demand for water as the population is growing heavily and urbanisation along with industrialisation are equally moving forward at a very fast pace, Naidu said this problem can easily be overcome with inter-linking of rivers, for which Andhra Pradesh is a model state.
Explaining the third strategy, he said that digital technology will certainly play a major role in the progress of the nation. Observing that the country has an advantage of digital public goods by the government like Aadhar, bank accounts, UPI, health-vaccine, mobile phones e-rupee and others, the TDP leader is of the opinion that digital technology can be brought in all walks of life.
Naidu said each family should be empowered to access the best available opportunities.
