Sukhbir Badal responded to the recent Bhagwant Mann’s controversy on social media at the Progressive Punjab Summit.
The Invest Punjab summit today ended with a total investment commitment of Rs 1.15 crore even as Mohali is set to emerge as an electronic hub with Videocon announcing it would invest Rs 500 crore to establish a mobile and set up box manufacturing facility here.
The valedictory function, which was presided over by Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, also saw him announcing a startup fund of Rs 100 crore for young entrepreneurs. He also announced that jewellery maker Geetanjali would establish a jewelry park at Amritsar at a cost of Rs. 1200 crore.
The Deputy chief minister also gave a call for all “born in Punjab” industrialists to invest back in their State in case they have settled out of Punjab or abroad. He said he would approach all such industrial heads in the near future and urge them to put up their units in the State of their birth.
Mr Badal also announced that the second investment summit had proved that Punjab was moving towards establishment of various clusters. He said Mohali was already emerging as a cluster for electronics and IT. He said similarly the State was also poised towards development of agro processing and defence and aero clusters.
During interaction with media, Mr Badal said the summit had also proved that industrial giants had shown full confidence in Punjab during this mega event and this summit would be a game changer in the overall development of the state. He also announced that a special policy providing for level playing field for MSME enterprises was also being framed and would be finalised within one month.
