Refinery In Konkan Will Materialise Asserts Fadnavis, Taunts Uddhav Thackeray

Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has emphatically reiterated that the proposed green refinery will materialise in Barsu-Solgaon belt of the Konkan region of the state. Castigating the previous Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) regime for delaying the massive project for political considerations, Fadnavis said the project will generate one lakh direct and five lakh indirect employment opportunities. The latest technology will ensure that there will not be any harmful emissions due to the refining process, so no pollution. Lamenting the disinformation spread about the project, he said Konkan people were misguided by telling them that the unique Alphonso mango would not survive because of the refinery. In fact, even after the Jamnagar refinery had been operating for years, the quality mango produced there was exported like the one from Konkan, he pointed out. Fadnavis alleged that the various schemes he had launched as chief minister for Konkan had been discontinued by the MVA government. All such and many more developmental activities would be started now, he said, reminding the audience at the Konkan Festival inauguration that he was making this promise as finance minister of the state. Taunting Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray in his speech, Fadnavis wondered how the electorate which had supported the Sena had been deprived of development by the leadership which had benefited due to this backing.
