The News Minute | December 3, 2014 | 11:40 am IST The Telangana government on Tuesday wrote a letter to the US Embassy inviting US President Barack Obama to the state during his visit to India for the Republic Day celebrations which is going to be held next month. The state government is positive about the acceptance of this invite as Hyderabad has already seen the visit of two of Obama’s predecessors, Bill Clinton in 2000 and George Bush in 2006. Information Technology minister K T Rama Rao met a delegation from the US state department to discuss the new industrial policy unveiled by the Telangana government and also extended an invitation to Obama to visit the state. The Government hopes that Obama’s visit will result in the state getting more global attention. The delegation also met AP chief minister Chandrababu Naidu to discuss their interest in investing in AP’s defence sector.
