Chidambaram termed T-Hub a very impressive and effective initiative.
“This is a model which must be replicated, especially in TN. It was enlightening to interact with the T-Hub team & the startups that are incubated there,” tweeted the MP from Tamil Nadu.
He was all praise for Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and former Chief Ministers of undivided Andhra Pradesh, N. Chandrababu Naidu and Y. S.
