Bathinda Pharma Park would upheaval Chinese supremacy in medical field:Manpreet Badal

Bathinda, Sep 18 (UNI) Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal on Friday said Punjab is extremely hopeful that Bathinda would emerge as a venue of one of the three Pharmaceutical Parks in India, which will go a long way in rooting out the stranglehold of Chinese medicine manufacturing sector.
Addressing the media here, the Finance Minister said Bathinda is an ideal location in North-Western India, adding that Bathinda is a place that can ensure ease of access to Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh and other northern states. Punjab has great potential to play a pivotal role in medicine manufacturing sector, he said.
Enumerating the benefits of Bathinda's geographical location, he stated that 1300 acres of land, on which the erstwhile thermal plant was commissioned, is now available for establishing the specialized Pharma Park. Further, the Bathinda oil refinery is a great asset as many products and byproducts of the refinery are similar to the pharma industry.
