Himachal Pradesh’s Chief Minister, Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, recently announced that several prominent business conglomerates have expressed keen interest in investing in the state and the government is committed to extending full logistical support to these potential investors.
This announcement was made during a meeting with a delegation from the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh Industrial Association (BBNIA), led by its President Rajiv Aggarwal and General Secretary YS Guleria. During this meeting, the BBNIA presented a generous donation of Rs 2.02 crore towards the ‘Aapda Rahat Kosh.’
Chief Minister Sukhu expressed his gratitude to the association for their noble contribution and emphasized that the state government is actively working to facilitate entrepreneurs and attract new investments. There is a strong focus on improving infrastructure in industrial areas, particularly in enhancing road connectivity. The government has also taken steps to expedite the process of connecting the industrial belt with rail connectivity, a matter that has been raised with the Union Government.
Furthermore, Chief Minister Sukhu highlighted the ongoing project to upgrade the Nalagarh-Bharatgarh road into a four-lane road, which will significantly benefit industrialists and commuters in the region. He assured the delegation that the government would consider their legitimate demands with empathy.
In addition to promoting industrial growth, the Chief Minister recently announced a relief package of Rs 4,500 crore to provide assistance and support to those who suffered losses due to the natural disasters caused by heavy rains from July to September.
