Uttarakhand CM criticizes Centre for not allotting textile parks
Nov '11
Uttarakhand Chief Minister BC Khanduri has criticized the Central Government for not including the State in Centre's list of 21 textile parks that are to be set up at a cost of Rs. 21 billion.

He claimed that the Centre has discriminated against the BJP-ruled Uttarakhand and it has allotted the maximum numbers of textile parks to the UPA-governed States.

The Central Government has approved establishment of 21 textile industrial parks in the country with world class infrastructure. Two such parks would be set up each in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, four in Rajasthan, six in Maharashtra, and one each in Gujarat, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Tripura and West Bengal.

Mr. Khanduri lamented the Centre's move of rolling back the industrial package that it extended to Uttarakhand in 2010.

The special industrial package offering a number of concessions for establishing new units in Uttarakhand was extended by the NDA government in 2003 and was slated for expiry on March 31, 2010. However, the Commerce Ministry in January 2010 urged the Prime Minister and the Finance Ministry to continue the package till 2013.

The CM stated if the Centre's UPA-ruled Government's discriminatory attitude does not change, Uttarakhand would become a 'state of barren land' with inadequate source of employment opportunities.
