Rohtak: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday said his government will not discriminate against any region of the state in development and industrial units would be set up in a uniform manner.
The BJP had been accusing the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda regime of regional bias in development of the state.
Khattar said that not only the government would provide land for industrial development but would also arrange capital investment.
"The aim of the BJP Government will be to undertake integrated industrial development in Haryana," he said.
The Chief Minister was addressing a gathering after inaugurating the second unit of Lotte India Company at Industrial Model Township here today.
Khattar said that the state government has signed MoUs with several big companies.
"In days to come, industries will be set up in those sectors which were being neglected so far. Under the New Enterprise Promotion Policy 2015, assistance will be given to industrialists setting up their units in backward areas," he said, according to an official release.
It was told that the Lotte India Unit set up at Rohtak would give employment to 750 people. The company has a plan to invest Rs 120 crore.
The Chairman of the Lotte Group, Shin Dong-Bin said that a beginning has been made for massive foreign direct investment (FDI) in India.
Earlier, Khattar told reporters that his recent visit to USA and Canada was "highly successful" in which he led a 32-member official and business delegation.
The Chief Minister, who returned last evening from the tour, said that his visit has proved to be a milestone for the state as far as industrial investment is concerned.
