It was Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s son and IT minister K T Rama Rao all the way at the Global Entrepreneurs Summit-2017 being held at Hyderabad International Convention Centre for the last two days.
The chief minister appears to have taken every care that his son becomes the centre of attraction at the global summit.
He introduced his son to all the top dignitaries on the first day of the HICC, particularly US president Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the first day.
He ensured that KTR figures in the list of VVIP dignitaries chosen by the Prime Minister’s Office at the dinner hosted by Modi at Taj Falaknuma Palace on Tuesday night. And KTR was given the prime position opposite to Ivanka so that he would hog the VVIP attention.
And on Wednesday morning, KTR got the opportunity to moderate a session which was attended by Ivanka, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair’s wife Cherie Blair, ICICI CEO Chanda Kochchar and others. And right from the beginning, KTR tried his best to impress Ivanka.
“Hyderabad is known as an Information Technology (IT) hub. But for the past few days, the word IT has become more popular and every Hyderabadi’s heart beats for IT. No, not Information Technology, but Ivanka Trump,” he said, as the Ivanks blushed.
And she, too, was very much pleased with the praise and later invited KTR to the US to have bilateral discussions!
