Ahmednagar, Sep 26 (UNI) Amid reports of Tata Motors shifting the Nano project from West Bengal, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupender Singh Hooda today invited the Tatas to his state.
Mr Hooda, while addressing a press conference here after visiting the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, said the Haryana government would provide all possible help and assistance to the Company to set up the Nano project plant.
With Haryana housing 50 per cent of the automobile industry, Tata's Nano project would have a better scope there, he added.
He said since the state government had implemented various plans for farmers, including good remuneration, Haryana has not yet witnessed any farmer suicide. The state has received Rs 2,100 crore under Union government's loan waiver scheme, he informed.
Mr Hooda said Haryana leads the other states in milk and wheat production and several plans have been proposed for further enhancement in coming years.
Large economic provisions have been made by the state government for agricultural and industrial development during the 11th five year plan, he said.
Farmers who have given away their land for the SEZ will receive Rs 30,000 per year for per hector for 33-years, he said.
Though there is no direct threat to the state, in view of the recent terror incidents across the country, security arrangements have been scaled up, Mr Hooda added.
