Union Minister for Commerce, Industries and Textiles, Shri Anand Sharma held meetings with Chief Minister of Punjab, Shri Parkash Singh Badal and Chief Minister of Haryana, Shri Bhupinder Singh Hooda here to discuss the industrial projects in the states. Shri Sharma was accompanied by a high level delegation from the Ministry of Commerce & Industry.

In the meeting with Punjab Chief Minister, Shri Sharma announced that Punjab would be connected to the Western Industrial Corridor (Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor). The Minister announced that initially Ludhiana will be linked to Rewari to provide this connectivity and there was in principal agreement between the Central Government and the Punjab Government for extending this connectivity to Amritsar, for which the feasibility will have to be worked out.

Underlining the need for reviving the investment and trade environment in Punjab, Shri Anand Sharma said that there was urgent need for job creation in the state and the farmers’ related issues. Highlighting the Central Government’s thrust on skill development with a view to generate employment in the region he said that two MoU’s have been signed with the Government of Germany for this purpose.

While interacting with the media persons here, Shri Sharma further announced that considering the severe environment and pollution problem in Ludhiana, a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) will be set up in Ludhiana under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) of the Ministry of Textiles. He further informed that a high-level committee under Secretary, Textiles would be visiting the city in two weeks time and plant would be setup in a time bound manner.
