B'swar ex-MP thanks CM for HPL project

Thursday, 22 August 2019 | PNS | BALESWAR

Former Baleswar MP Rabindra Kumar Jena has expressed his deep gratitude to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for his announcement of a mega project of HPL (Haldia Petrochemicals Limited)  for the district.

The project proposed to  be established at Baliapal near Subarnarekha port envisages an investment to the tune of Rs 78,225 crore, paving way for  direct  employment of about 10,000 persons .

Following announcement of the mega project, Jena observed, “After a lot of persuasions, the State Government finally conceded  to the proposal placed  before the CM by me.  In February this year, an MoU was signed  with the oil company. For identification of  the appropriate venue for  the unit, several other places in other districts were too considered and finally the project was inked in favour of Baleswar district.

The unit  after establishment would attract more downstream as well as ancillary industries  which  would generate more employment scope . About 2,500 acres of  land  would be required  to establish the unit .00

However , the project would  definitely give a quantum boost to the local employment as well economy when construction works of the  Subarnarekha port, with estimated cost of around  Rs 5,000 crore ,  is in progress. On behalf of residents of Baleswar I express my sincere thanks to the CM, said Jena.

He further opined that the district which was witnessing a stagnancy of industries and employment after nineties  would find a sea change following establishment  of these two projects , the Subarnarekha port and the HPL unit.

Notably, during the tenure of Jena as MP, on February 13, 2019, the foundation stone for   several projects including the Subarnarekha port  at a cost of  Rs 6,524 crore were  laid by the Chief Minister during his visit to the district ahead of the general elections.
