Maharashtra CM Devendra fadnavis laid foundation stone for starting additional facilities for Textile Park in Nandgaon Peth MIDC, Amravati.
This Amravati Textile Park has 8 major textile units with investment of Rs 1243 crore, giving a direct employment to 3700 people.
“On the lines of Nandgaonpeth, eight more textile parks would be set up at Yavatmal, Buldana, Jalgaon, Aurangabad, Jalna, Parbhani, Beed and Nanded,” Fadnavis announced.
Admitting that farmer suicides were reported mostly from the cotton-growing areas, he said his government gives special priority to providing irrigation facilities and setting up cotton processing units in these areas.
“Jalyukta Shivar Yojana is a part of this endeavour. It is essential to create decentralised water storages. It is necessary to complete well-digging works. Unless irrigation facilities are created, farmers’ life will not improve,” he said.
He also laid foundation stone for Siyaram Silk Mills. Siyaram is investing Rs 250 crore with an employment generation of 250. Industries Minister Shri Subhash Desai, Minister Shri Praveen Pote, Minister Ranjit Patil, MP Anand Adsul, MLA Sunil Deshmukh, Dr. Anil Bonde, MLA Yashomati Thakur too were present.
