Google will build a new campus at Hyderabad, even as it is working towards including as many people as possible to use the Internet in India, its chief executive, Sundar Pichai, said here on Wednesday.

“In our attempt to provide Internet access to people, we have decided to provide Wi-Fi in 400 railway stations with RailTel. The 100 stations will come online by 2016 end. Mumbai Central station will be online by January,” Pichai said at an event here.

This was also a part of the assurance which Google gave to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when he visited the search engine giant’s headquarters at Mountain View, Santa Clara County in California in September this year.

Regarding the company’s expansion plans in India, he said: “We will ramp up our engineering investments at our Bangalore and Hyderabad facilities.”

“We will also build a huge new campus in Hyderabad,” he said, but did not disclose the amount of investment. The company now has 1500 employees in India.

“This country has given me and Google so much and I just hope we can give much more to the country,” he said, adding: “A lot of what today is about is how we build products for the next billion Indian users, yet to come online.”

Protecting interests of 130 crore Indians is our priority: Modi

PM Modi

Prayagraj, Feb 29 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here on Saturday that be it the senior citizens, divyangs or tribals, Dalits, or those who have been exploited or deprived, protecting the interests of 130 crore Indians and serving them is the top priority of his government. He was speaking after distributing equipment to differently abled people at the parade ground.

In his address, Modi said, “During the time of earlier governments, such camps were very less and such mega camps were hardly held. In the last five years, our government held about 9,000 such camps in different areas of the country because it is our top priority to protect the interests of 130 crore Indians.”

He said, “If anyone persecutes or makes fun of the disabled, the rules related to this have also been strengthened. A special drive for recruitment of the disabled has been launched and reservation has been increased from three per cent to four per cent. In higher education institutions, reservation has been increased from three per cent to five per cent for admissions. Skill training has been given to two lakh. Participation of divyangs in every field is a must, whether industry or sports.”

The Prime Minister said, “Around 27,000 people have been given equipment today. Some got tricycles, some hearing aides and some got wheel chairs.”

He said coming to Prayagraj is like a pilgrimage and always helps generate purity and energy.

Modi said, “I remember, in February last year, it was around this time that I came here during the Kumbh. As your Pradhan Sevak, I have the opportunity to serve thousands of divyangs and elders. And this time, I have got the opportunity to serve senior citizens.”

He said, “I believe that these tools are aides of your high spirits. Your real strength is your patience and your capability.

“During the rule of the previous dispensation, equipment worth less than Rs 380 crore was distributed to the divyangs, while our government has distributed more than Rs 900 crore worth equipment. That is, about two and a half times more. In the last four-five years, hundreds of buildings in the country, more than 700 railway stations and airports have been made accessible to the divyangs. The remaining ones are also being made accessible to them.”

He added, “The rightful participation of every differently abled youth or child is essential in the creation of a new India. Whether it is industry, service sector or sports, the skills of the divyangs are constantly being encouraged. We are constantly working to reduce difficulties in the lives of the senior citizens.”

New Delhi, Feb 29 : The Congress on Saturday attacked the Centre over its performance in the economic sector. Raising the quarterly three performance of this financial year, Congress leader Anand Sharma cornered the government.

“Q3 results are generally very strong…But this year’s result has been the lowest in the last seven years,” said Sharma. Raising concerns over the deteriorating GDP trend, he stressed on the nominal GDP, which he claimed should be much higher than it is as of today.

He also called the budget “directionless” and claimed that it did not provide any incentive to either the investors or the manufacturers. “We reject the government’s claims that the economy is showing signs of coming back on track,” Sharma said.

He also raised concerns about the manufacturing sector saying it is in the negative. “This section provides jobs, and such performances are dismal.

“India does not benefit from the FDI numbers which the government is throwing at us,” he said.

He cited the NSO data to suggest that the demand has decreased.

“If government will only write off loans of the corporates and remain dismissive of the poor, the government’s intent becomes clear,” said Sharma.

He went on to allege that the present government has “ruined Indian economy”
