    Hyderabad: Hyderabad got universal recognition for attracting knowledge based industries such IT, Life Sciences, Animation, Gaming, Defence, Aerospace, Bio-Technology said Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Government of Telangana. We left many cities far behind. The value proposition we offer to companies put Hyderabad much ahead of other cities in India like Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon. None can match the totality and holistic picture of Hyderabad, he added

    He was the chief guest at the inauguration of 7th Telangana Facility Management Council Summit, an annual event of 400 strong Facility Management professionals in Hyderabad held on Friday at Anvaya  Conventions at Gachibowli Financial District.

    Government alone can’t be responsible. Together with government helped create positive word about Hyderabad. We must continue to remain ahead.

    Any initiative taken up must sustain for a long time said Jayesh. And added that the intensity of many initiatives such as Car Pooling, Car Free Thursday, Cyckle to Work, Honking Not Ok etc which were taken up with lot of enthusiasm some time ago died down. Though they helped create awareness and sensitized people but they couldn’t sustain for longer period of time. So plan initiatives which long for a longer period of time, Jayesh told the FM professionals.
