The tweet made by the Minister has attracted the attention of a cross-section of the social media regulars with most of them hailing the move.

“Hey Elon, I am the Industry & Commerce Minister of Telangana State in India. Will be happy to partner Tesla in working through the challenges to set shop in India/Telangana. Our State is a champion in sustainability initiatives & a top notch business destination in India,” tweeted Mr. Rama Rao in reply to a tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
