Thimmaya Poojary Affable, open minded and determined to achieve the goals of the state. The man is in a hurry to get things done. Being the son of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu does not give him any special benefits and this young minister, with degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Stanford, has billion-dollar dreams for the young state while connecting with the masses.
In an interview with YourStory at the recently concluded Vizag Fintech Festivalthe minister spoke extensively on his various plans for the state, his family and very importantly his father. Here are edited excerpts. How are you differentiating Andhra from other states? One needs get a little bit of background.
The state was bifurcated inand that time we had the lowest per capita income in South India, which was about Rsper annum. The reason for that is very clear, it is because of Mr Naidu. We have a great brand ambassador in Mr Naidu who, in in his first stint, gave a lot of confidence to the industry and for us, that has really worked.
We have attracted marquee names in IT: We have converted medium to large investments in the state of Andhra Pradesh and we are second to Gujarat only by two. If one recalibrates, we started with no state capital, and from there getting an address, getting the world excited about Amaravati.

What is this magic of Sri City that is employing a large number of women? Early on, we recognised that electronics is going to be a massive sector that is going to grow and Andhra should ride the wave.
When Mr Naidu visited a lot of these plants like Foxconn in Shenzhen, one thing which caught our attention was the nice environment where people worked. Then came the entire debate: The Foxconn CEO told us that our labour laws did not allow it.
In 30 days flat, we got the law out to enable women to work in all three shifts and are the first state to do this. At Foxconn, there are 18, women working in three shifts.
Today, it is about giving that dignity of labour and sense of empowerment to women. If one looks at all the emerging economies, women play a key role. Andhra Pradesh is so focused on giving opportunity to women in industries.
Is this a clear mandate or by default? It is not a mandate or a default but how the leadership thinks. Mr Naidu is all about empowerment and at home, both his wife and daughter-in-law work in the family business. This has been happening since early s.Sep 26, · Havells India plans big expansion in AP.
