CHANDIGARH, MARCH 25
Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today said that Chandigarh is part of Haryana and many big Congress leaders of the state have struggled for long for Chandigarh. Also, the people of the state like Chandigarh as the capital of Haryana.
The Chief Minister was interacting with media persons after redressing the grievances of the people in Rohtak today.
He said that along with agriculture the state has witnessed tremendous industrial development. He said that the state government is promoting its policy of industrialization. Like the Maruti Suzuki Company, many other such big companies would set up their units in Haryana.
With car buyers shifting their focus to diesel, India’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) would invest Rs 1,700 crore to set up a new diesel engine plant at its Gurgaon complex that would become operational by mid 2013. It has also decided to pump in another Rs 900 crore at its upcoming Research and Development centre (R and D) at Rohtak.
Mr Hooda said that today, Haryana has become the first choice of many national and international companies for industrial investment. Many big industrial houses including Suzuki, Asian Paints, Maruti, Hero Honda, Footwear Design and Development Institute, Hitech Plast and Sabarkantha Dairy have shown interest in the State.
In reply to a question he said that the Land Acquisition Policy of Haryana has become a role model for the entire country. Along with land compensation, attractive royalty given every year is also a big facility provided to the land owners. He said that the people view land acquisition in rural areas of Haryana as a means of progress. Residents of many villages have expressed their gratitude, he added.
A number of people including Sarpanches and villagers who were led by Mr Jaideep Singh Dhankhar, expressed their gratitude to Mr Hooda for approving the proposal of the Suzuki company to set up its manufacturing facility for two wheelers in Rohtak. They said that with the setting up of this plant, the economy of the area would get a big boost.
