YSR Congress party MLA from Nagari assembly constituency in Chittoor district R K Rooja has finally been rewarded with a plum post for her loyalty to the party and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.
According to reports from Amaravati, Jagan has offered her the post of Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) chairperson and she has accepted the same. Orders to this effect will be issued soon, sources said.
APIIC is a very important corporation under the government and is a single window for establishment of any industry in the state.
Any application for setting up of an industry has to be routed through APIIC for approval.
Apart from granting licences, the corporation also provides all the necessary infrastructure for the industry including land, electricity, water supply etc.
So, the chairperson of APIIC will have all the powers to grant or reject any application for an industry.
Since it is a cabinet rank post, Roja must be definitely happy. She will have all the privileges of a minister and has protocol privileges.
What more does she want?
