Going by highly-placed sources, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is likely to meet Information Technology Minister K. Taraka Rama Rao (KTR) in the month of August or October. Buzz is that Microsoft is keenly contemplating to expand its Hyderabad unit. As part of the negotiations, the World’s supreme software firm has sent its Indian Chief Bhaskar Pramanik for the talks with KTR.
It is learnt that KTR has invited its CEO Satya Nadella for the talks. Microsoft authorities apparently told KTR that Satya would be coming to Hyderabad in August or October during which he is going to meet KCR, KTR and enhance the talks between the software giant and Telangana government.The Hyderabad-born Satya share great bond with the city. He was the alumni of Hyderabad Public School (HPS). Perhaps, this roots have drived Satya towards Hyderabad.
On other side, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu too trying his best to woo Satya Nadella and likely to put pressure on Satya to establish the firm in new state of AP as well. We hear that Satya will also be accepting Naidu’s request to visit AP and so Telangana government’s invitation. Still it’s unclear which way Satya is inclined towards. We have to wait and watch.
