BJP criticises Odisha’s industrial policy ahead of Make in Odisha conclave
Bhubaneswar: The ‘Make in Odisha Conclave’ is scheduled to be held in Bhubaneswar from November 11-15. While preparations by the BJD-led government are on in full swing, the BJP has raised questions over the State government’s industrial policies.
Addressing a presser here at the BJP party headquarters, spokesperson Golaka Mohapatra said that the BJD has turned the ‘Make in Odisha’ into ‘Make in BJD and Break in Odisha.’
“Electricity, water, land and raw materials are the basic things needed for the establishment of industries. Industrial growth in the State can only be possible, if the State government lays importance and focus on these four areas,” Mohapatra said.
He further said that the cost of electricity in Odisha is higher as compared to many developed States like Gujarat despite the fact that Gujarat doesn’t have coal while Odisha has the same in abundance.
