Investment prerequisite for developed country and state: Yogi

Investment prerequisite for developed country and state: Yogi

Gorakhpur, Feb 22 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday said that investment is the prerequisite for a developed country and state and industrial development is a natural outcome of good governance as well as prevalence of rule of law.
Addressing a public meeting at a function organised in Sector 13 of Gorakhpur Industrial development Authority (GIDA) after launching 20 projects worth Rs 1,040 crore to the authority, the CM said that the double engine government aims to build a developed India under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The projects for GIDA include launch of GIDA's Kalesar Residential Township Scheme with an estimated income of Rs 650 crore, laying of foundation stone of SD International's plastic recycling and food packaging container unit with an investment of Rs 300 crore as well as inauguration and foundation stone laying of 18 development projects worth Rs 90 crores.
The CM also distributed enrollment certificates to five students of the Skill Training Center of National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology (NIELIT) on the occasion.
He said, "To fulfill this resolution of a developed India, UP needs to be developed and for this Gorakhpur needs to be developed. Industrial investment is a prerequisite for fulfilling this resolution of a developed country, state and district."
Yogi said that the industrial development and creation of employment opportunities being witnessed in the state are the result of better law and order, good governance and election of good public representatives. "When intentions are good, results are also good," he said.
Emphasizing that GIDA is touching new heights, he said the Gorakhpur Link Expressway project is expected to be completed soon, providing two routes to travel to Lucknow. He expressed the need for developing this region as an industrial cluster, highlighting the efforts made in recent years.
The CM mentioned investments made in GIDA by companies such as Varun Beverages, Cayan Distilleries, CP Milk, Tatva Plastics, Central Warehousing Corporation, India Autowheels, Balaji Processors, Rungta Industries, Kapila Krishi Udyog and Singh Paper Projects. He said that these investments are expected to create job opportunities for around 5,000 youths.
He shared development of other industries in the GIDA area, including a garment park on 25 acres, a plastic park on 88 acres, and the construction of a flat factory at a cost of Rs 34 crores. He said that the government is also going to build an industrial township in Dhuriyapar on 5,500 acres.
Yogi said that there is a recent proposal for setting up a new cement factory for which the land has already been shown to the investor. He mentioned that as many as four crore houses have been provided to the poor across the country since Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the announcement in this regard in 2014, soon after becoming the PM for the first time.
He said, "Along with the Gorakhpur Development Authority, GIDA has also taken forward steps for those who are willing to get housing by paying their money. Houses will be available for every category of people in GIDA's Kalesar Housing Project."
The CM highlighted the importance of attractive packaging of products in enhancing its market value and thanked the directors of SD International for setting up the new unit in the packaging sector.
Speaking of various developments in Gorakhpur, he said, "The city is transforming into a new Gorakhpur. Kalesar to Jangal Kauria bypass was earlier a dream, presently it is a reality. AIIMS has been built in Gorakhpur and BRD Medical College has been upgraded. The fertilizer factory has started and four universities have been established in Gorakhpur."
He further mentioned that the government has recently approved a veterinary college for Gorakhpur, which will later be transformed into a university. "Atal Residential School has been set up in Sahjanwa and a Sarvodaya School has been set up in Harpur. In every area, something new is happening," he said.
The CM said that along with ensuring development, the government is also respecting the faiths of people, referring to the consecration of Lord Shri Ram's idol in his grand temple in Ayodhya after a gap of centuries. He urged everyone to visit Ayodhya and seek the blessings of Lord Shri Ram.
It may be noted that after its completion in sector 13 of GIDA in an area of 42,284 square meters at the cost of Rs 300 crores, the SD International's plastic recycling packaging unit will offer employment to 750 people. Additionally, a 3-megawatt solar plant will also be installed in this unit.
The Kalesar Residential Township, launched by the CM , will be developed on 120 acres. In this residential project, small, medium and large-sized plots will be available catering to the needs of people of low, middle and high-income groups.
