State deliberately delaying Central projects: BJP

Thursday, 22 August 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The BJP on Wednesday criticised the State Government that it is knowingly delaying approval of Central projects worth over Rs 1 lakh crore, proposed by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited two years ago, for political reasons against the interest of people.

“The State Government approved projects worth Rs 2 lakh crore recently, which included IOCL’s Paradip Refinery expansion project, Haladia petrochemical project and Talcher Fertiliser. The Union Government had approved the Haladia petrochemical and Talcher fertilizer projects much earlier and was waiting to get NOC from the State Government. By approving these projects now, the State Government is hoodwinking people,” said BJP State vice-president Samir Mohanty at a Press meet here.

He alleged that the State Government has obstructed the development of the State by not approving Central projects on time.

Mohanty also alleged that the State Government is not cooperating with the Centre in the expansion of NTPC’s 1,320-MW project at Talcher, which would bring investment of 10,000 crore. Among others, party’s State secretary Kalandi Samal and Yuba Moacha State president Tankadhar Tripathy were present.
