Jamshedpur: Jharkhand Vikas Morcha- Prajantrik (JVM) chief, Babulal Marandi on Thursday said the mineral-rich state has enough potential for industrial growth.

"Jharkhand has lot of scope for industrialisation but we have to rein in traders engaged in transporting mineral resources outside the state," former Chief Minister Marandi said at a press conference here.

Referring to several MoUs signed between prospective investors and the state government since Jharkhand was formed in 2000, Marandi said the JVM-Congress, if voted to power, will curb transportation of mineral resources and would force investors to set up their units in the state.

Preference to allot mines will be given to those traders who are keen to set up their units in the state, Marandi said adding that this would not only generate employment but also take the state on the right path of development.

Strongly advocating for small industries, Marandi said such industries could be established in over 250-300 acres of land, which could be available without any problem.

The JVM-Congress alliance would provide a stable, corruption-free and fearless government if voted to power, he added.
