Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu today inaugurated the commencement of the Bulk Drug Park constructed at Panjuvana in Haroli Assembly constituency of Una district.
Addressing a large public gathering on this occasion, the Chief Minister highlighted this project was a revolutionary initiative of the state government which would go a long way in significant transformation of the entire region besides providing employment and self-employment opportunities to the local people. The state government would provide land at a nominal cost of one rupee, electricity at the rate of three rupees per unit and free water for a period of ten years to the industries coming up in the Bulk Drug Park. The state government would also extend financial support for construction of five-kilometer railway line from Jaijon to Polian costing approximately Rs. 3400 crore.
The Chief Minister said the Indira Gandhi Pyari Behna Sukh Samman Nidhi scheme had been launched from Haroli and commencement of the Bulk Drug Park within 48 hours, were two significant developments in Una district. Under the Pyari Behna scheme, the women would receive Rs. 18,000 annually. He said that reinstating the old pension scheme for government employees and providing financial assistance of Rs. 3 lakh to widows for building homes reflects the government’s dedication to its employees and efforts towards women empowerment. The state government would also bear education expenses for the education of widows’ children up to the age of 27. He said a Center of Excellence was also coming up at Kandaghat in district Solan, which aims to provide higher education to 9,000 specially abled children of the state.
Shri Sukhu said that the previous BJP government mismanaged the state’s finances, which has put every resident of the state under a debt burden of Rs. 1.25 lakh. The present state government was committed to strengthening the state’s economy and making it a self-reliant state.
He added that Deputy Chief Minister Mukesh Agnihotri has dedicated himself to the development of Haroli Assembly constituency and contribution has been significant.
The Deputy Chief Minister thanked the Chief Minister for allocating Rs. 1000 crore for construction of the Bulk Drug Park. He said that now the park would be developed without involving private agencies. The residents of Volleyball, Kuthar Beet, and Poliyan would be benefited from the project. Earlier the people of this area had to face various challenges like proper health care, education and water facilities. To meet out the electricity requirement of the area, the government has made a provision of Rs. 40 crore and there would be nno power shortage from next year.
Mukesh Agnihotri further said many women were misled by the BJP and did not apply for taking benefit of Indira Gandhi Pyari Behna Sukh Samman Nidhi Yojana. However, rest women have received pension amount for three months.
Industries Minister Harshwardhan Chauhan said that it was a significant moment for Haroli, as the Chief Minister initiated major projects for the area. The bulk drug park would help in manufacturing raw material for pharmaceutical industry and reduce dependence on Chinese imports.
He said that two Congress MLAs from Una district also supported BJP in the Rajya Sabha elections, but the public thwarted BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’. He said that the public has strongly responded to the practice of buying and selling politicians and rejected BJP’s conspiracy to form government.
MLA’s Sudarshan Babloo and Vivek Vikku, District Congress President Ranjit Rana, Mandal President Vinod Bittu, Director Industries Rakesh Prajapati, Deputy Commissioner Jatin Lal and other dignitaries were present among others.
