Minister for Tourism and Culture Azmeera Chandulal administered the oath of office to Panyala Bhupathi Reddy as the Chairman of Telangana State Tourism Development Corporation amid chanting of
slokas
and cheers by party workers at Tourism Plaza here on Wednesday.

“I will strive to boost tourism and deliver on the trust that’s been reposed in me by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao,” said Mr. Reddy, after the oath-taking ceremony.

“Bhupathi Reddy was one of the leading lights of the agitation for separate Telangana State. The message from this posting is that those who wait will be rewarded,” said MLA E. Ravinder Reddy, asking the assembled party workers to have patience.

“For years, tourism in Telangana region was neglected. Now, the government wants to turn this sector into a driving force for the economy. Bhupathi Reddy, who was part of the Telangana movement right from the beginning, will ensure that tourism becomes a revenue-earning aspect,” said K. Prabhakar Reddy, TRS MLA.
