The Telangana government is trying to convince Saudi Arabian authorities to set up a consulate in Hyderabad. Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali on Thursday said that the Saudi government too had expressed interest in setting up a consulate in Hyderabad to extend its services to the southern states.
He added that in response to a letter by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao through external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, the Saudi government had responded positively for setting up a consulate in the city.
The deputy CM said that since every year hundreds pilgrims from Telangana applied for Umrah and Haj, and also in view of the frequent problems with migrant labourers from Telangana, the government had decided to convince the Saudi government to set up a consulate in Hyderabad.
The deputy Chief Minister said that he would visit Riyadh in the last week of October to discuss with Saudi officials the issue of setting up a consulate.
