KT Rama Rao, Telangana’s Information Technology and Industries Minister, said March 9 was a watershed moment for the state, with Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao announcing that the state government would conduct direct recruitment for over 80,000 positions.
Rama Rao, who spoke at the inauguration of the Nizam College Women’s Hostel and the graduation ceremony, said that many students and young people had been waiting for notifications for the past seven and a half years, and that students who graduated on Wednesday were fortunate in that the notification was released the same day. The Minister advised graduating students to view the Chief Minister’s announcement as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and take advantage of it.
He also encouraged young people to dream big and become job creators rather than job seekers. When asked about the names of Indian-origin CEOs who lead top global corporations, he said that while the companies were led by Indians, no major corporations such as Microsoft or Google were founded in India. “This generation has the dream and aspiration to create world-class products and provide world-class solutions to the rest of the world,” Rama Rao said.
