Patna: BJP on Saturday urged the President, Prime
Minister and Defence Minister to take steps to start the
proposed Ordnance factory at Rajgir in Bihar.
Bihar BJP president C P Thakur told newsmen here that it
was decided to complete the construction of the factory in
2010, but work was stopped due to some problems.
Farmers in Nalanda had provided 3100 acres for the
proposed factory expecting creation of job avenues at a time
when the state governments across the country face stiff
opposition in acquiring land for setting up industries.
"It will be a rude shock to the farmers of Nalanda if
they come to know that the Centre has put the project in
coldstorage," he added.
