    BANGALORE: Deputy chief minister CN Ashwath Narayan on Tuesday conveyed his appreciation to technology company Western Digital for developing a 1 TB Micro SD card at its facility in Bengaluru.

    The deputy chief minister interacted with Supria Dhanda, the country head of the California headquartered technology company, through video-conferencing, and urged the firm to take advantage of Karnataka's friendly investment policies.

    The deputy chief minister, who holds the IT portfolio, said it was indeed a marvel that such a large amount of data could be stored into such a small thumb-sized device, and it was a matter of pride for the government that it was made in Bengaluru.

    The firm has its presence in Bengaluru for the past 15 years and employs about 3000 people at its facility in the city.

    Many firms are manufacturing such micro SD cards in other countries, and Karnataka, with its investor friendly policies was open to offer all support to them if they were to start production in Bengaluru, a hub for technological innovation, he said.

    We want you to sit home as you dont deserve to be a politician. Your evil mind keeps thinking that I am priviledge to loot this country for another decade.... so before that prevails in your mind you resign and replace someone who is willing to support this initiative going forward.
    1: Either you should have a tech knowledge or business management knowledge - since you have knowledge to loot you are not eligible so leave
