Ludhiana: Union Minister for Food Processing Industries Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday laid the foundation stone of Mega Food Park at Ladhowal village, near here. This is the first of its kind Mega Food Park of the state, which is being developed by the Punjab Agro Industries Corporation of the Punjab government.
While speaking on the occasion, Harsimrat suggested that this project be named as “Gurkirpal Mega Food Park” because the speed at which Punjab has witnessed all-round record development is due to the “Kirpa” of our “Guru”. She said that this Multi Product Mega Food Park is the gift of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Punjab and will give benefit to farmers and processors of Ludhiana, Fatehgarh Sahib, Rupnagar, Nawanshahr, Jalandhar, Moga, Sangrur and Barnala districts of the state.
While speaking on the occasion, Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal said that this Mega Food Park project will create a modern infrastructure for arresting post-harvest losses of horticultural and non-horticultural produce and provide impetus to the growth of food processing sector in Punjab.
Later, while speaking to media persons, Sukhbir said that during the last 9 years, the state has witnessed record development in all fields and during the rule of Capt Amarinder Singh, there was not even a single project which the Congressmen can claim as their achievement. He said that the Congress has already conceded defeat and SAD-BJP would form government for the third time a row due to its record development. While terming Aam Aadmi Party as Anti-Punjab, he said that like the Congress, even AAP cannot boast of any of their achievements, because there is none.
