The Andhra Pradesh government outlined a project to spread Telugu culture in all corners of the world. Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu met the AP Non-Resident Telugu (APNRT) governing body at his camp office in Amaravathi.
Addressing the meeting, Chandrababu said that two plans are charted out in this project. One is to build Tirumala Venkateswara Swamy Temples in every part of the world; the second one is to take the Andhra's official dance form Kuchipudi to every nook and corner of the world.
CM also directed the officials to bring in a special Industrial policy through which Telugu people residing in foreign countries would find it convenient to invest in the state. He also suggested the officials to study about organising a special investment zone and a special cell for the APNRT in the Haryana model.
He also agreed to have a Migration Policy in the first APNRT governing body meeting. Pravasandhra Helpline, Pravasandhra Bharosa and Pravasandhra Relief Fund would help to complete the mission. Members of APNRT would get insurance under Pravasandhra Bharosa. Pravasandhra Relief Fund would be available to anyone who has lost their means of livelihood.
The state government has sanctioned Rs 40 crore for Migration Policy, and the CM has ordered the immediate release of Rs 20 crore under the policy.
