Talking to newsmen here this afternoon, state Major Industries minister J Geeta Reddy said AP was initially not part of the corridor but, after hectic lobbying with the Centre, it has been included.

"The corridor`s development is being supported by the Japanese government. The Krishnapatnam port region development will be taken up in the first phase. In the second phase, the Hindupur-Chittoor-Nellore belt will be developed," the minister added.
