The MP stated that the port city held strategic and economic significance to the country as it is the Eastern Naval Command’s headquarters in a letter to the Union Information Technology and Communication Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw. He added that Vizag is a fast-growing city and the state’s economic engine. Major Indian Coast Guard operations and key national assets such as the Hindustan Shipyard Limited, SAMEER and others are located in the city and can benefit from speedy internet, mentioned the MP.
