Hyderabad, Dec 27 : The State Government, which boasts of promoting Information Technology in Andhra Pradesh on a large scale was left red-faced on Monday after the main server at the Secretariat crashed and remained non-functional for over eight hours.
This was seen as a huge embarrassment for the government as many important files and decision were affected at the seat of administration of the state.
