Naveen asks Andhra CM to correct APTDC website

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday sought intervention of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in correcting a `mistake` in the website of the southern state`s tourism development corporation.

It has been brought to notice that Mahendragiri Hills have been included in the website of Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, Patnaik said in a letter to Reddy on Thursday.

Affirming that Mahendragiri Hills are very much a part of Gajapati district in Orissa, Patnaik said the state has taken up several eco-tourism projects in those areas. "It is unfortunate that a Corporation of Andhra Pradesh government has included the Mahendragiri hills in its website," Patnaik said.

Therefore, Patnaik said, "I would request you (Reddy) to instruct the officials concerned in your government to correct this mistake immediately."
