Hyderabad, Jan 15: Telangana minister KT Rama Rao invited Tesla CEO Elon Musk to set up shop in his state. Taking to his official Twitter handle, Telangana’s Industry and Commerce Minister KT Rama Rao expressed his happiness in partnering with Tesla to work on the challenges faced by the company in India.
KTR's response comes a day after the billionaire said that Tesla Inc is "still working through a lot of challenges with the government" in India to launch its electric cars.
KTR said, "Hey Elon, I am the Industry & Commerce Minister of Telangana state in India. I will be happy to partner with Tesla in working through the challenges to set shop in India/Telangana. Our state is a champion in sustainability initiatives & a top-notch business destination in India."
