Naidu's Start-Up Plan To Wind Up! 29-Jul-2016
Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has the habit of imitating whatever schemes other states take up and claiming them as his own brain-children by giving them a lot of hype and publicity through his favourite media. But more often than not, they end up as mere publicity stunts. Take for example, the so-called Sunrise Start-Up Village started by Naidu amidst hype and hoopla at Rushikonda in Visakhapatnam in September 2014. Needless to say, it was the poor imitation of T-Hub launched by the Telangana government in Hyderabad. Naidu declared then that the 17,000 square feet Start-Up village would soon buzz with activity with several companies making a beeline to start their units there providing employment to thousands of people. He also said it was going to be the biggest start-up incubation centre in the country in the next two years. But after two years, the start-up village remained a non-starter. Only four or five companies started their units there and they are now forced to vacate the premises as the government had changed the rules for the start-ups. Now, the start-up village is all set to be wound up!
