Bathinda(Pb): Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today inaugurated a Rs 100-crore dairy feed plant here, which he said would help in creating employment and benefit the farmers.
“A major portion of maize needed to manufacture the dairy feeds would be procured from farmers of the state,” he said, adding, it will help create employment opportunities for around 400 people.
The plant has been build at a cost of Rs 100 crore by Cargill Feed and Nutrition India with active support from the Punjab government, the Deputy Chief Minister said.
It will also educate farmers on latest trends and in technological advancement in the dairy sector, he said.
“For the benefit of the farmers, Asia’s biggest food processing park, worth Rs 1,500 crore, is being set up at Kapurthala. Food parks would also be developed at Ludhiana, Phagwara and Fazilka,” he said.
Slamming the Congress, AAP and the “fourth front”, he alleged, “Arvind Kejriwal had shunned his responsibility as the Delhi Chief Minister and eyes power in Punjab. State Congress chief Amarinder Singh cannot showcase a single achievement from when he was the Chief Minister between 2002-2007.”
He also alleged, “The fourth front and its leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has only indulged in flip-flop instead of taking firm stand on any issue.” Many such fronts would mushroom ahead of the Assembly polls, but people will vote only for development and progress, in which the SAD-BJP has clear edge,” Sukhbir claimed.
