Hyderabad: Stating that the Centre was committed to the development of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Union Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said thrust would be on industrial development in the two states.  

“With the formation of Telangana state, scope for creating employment opportunities for the local youth has increased. We need to provide necessary training for skill development,” she said.

Sitharaman was accorded a warm reception and felicitated by BJP cadres on her maiden visit to the city after taking charge as Union Minister last month.
