Telangana Minister K. T. Rama Rao on Friday in a series of tweets proposed some measures to Union Government which it may initiate to "reboot and energise" India's economy to attract investments to the country as it combats Coronavirus crisis. Tagging Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal he said that India has a great opportunity, "let’s grab it aggressively."

'Carry our bold and essential reforms'

First, he urged the Government to carry out bold and essential reforms at the earliest. He asked to imbibe all best practices in Ease of Doing Business to propel India into top 20 in the world rankings. He suggested that the country's dated labour laws and bankruptcy laws should be updated and more importantly there's a need to guarantee and honour consistency in state policies to investors.

In another tweet, the Telangana Minister said that it is very important to focus on creating world-class industrial infrastructure in a mission mode over the next one year - "large self-contained industrial parks; corridors; develop world-class ITIs & polytechnics (2-4 for every state) Capacity building in Infra & skills is vital," he said.

The TRS president said that Mega industrial parks such as Hyderabad Pharma City and Kakatiya Mega Textile Park in Telangana need to be promoted as projects of national importance.
