Mumbai, 14th September 2022: The opposition in Maharashtra has made many allegations after the announcement of the semiconductor plant being set up in Gujarat and has sought answers from Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.
The opposition parties in Maharashtra are questioning CM Shinde as to why the plant was set up in Gujarat and it should come back to Maharashtra.
Vedanta and Taiwanese electronics company Foxconn have announced
the setting up of a Rs 1.54 lakh crore semiconductor plant in Gujarat.
Congress alleged that the relocation of the plant had caused some “bad omen”, while the NCP said the plant was snatched away. NCP State President and Former Minister Jayant Patil said a big project slipped out of the hands of the state and an investment of over Rs 1 lakh crore was lost.
Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray, said that when the Maha Vikas Aghadi government was in power, the project was strongly advocated and it was almost certain that the plant would be set up in Maharashtra.
MNS Supremo Raj Thackeray said that he has demanded an inquiry as to how the deal went to Gujarat instead of Maharashtra. Maharashtra was a priority for investors but the deal reaching Gujarat is serious and not a good sign.
