Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said he envisions making the state as the most favoured investment destination not only in the country but also across the globe.

Making a strong pitch to attract investment and describing Punjab as the “best investment destination”, the deputy CM, who in the run-up to the second edition of the summit being held at Indian School of Business (ISB) here, had personally knocked at the doors of top industrialists, gave a 35-minute power-point presentation laced with wit.

Badal said, “Have trust and confidence in us and I am sure that your decision to invest in Punjab will never go wrong and together we will certainly script a new success story of unprecedented development in the state.” Ruing the decision of the previous central government to extend fiscal incentives and concessions to the neighborly states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir, the Chief Minister said he was not personally against giving such concessions to these states but excluding Punjab, despite its huge contribution towards country’s economic growth, was not only unfair but also unjustifiable.
