Assam Chief Minister Sarabananda Sonowal lays foundation stone for Ramdev food park

Today:- GUWAHATI,NOV – ASSAM CHIEF Minister Sarabananda Sonowal on Sunday laid the foundation stone of a Rs.1,000-crore herbal and mega food park to be set up by Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda near Tezpur, about 180Km from Guwahati. This is the first big investment for the BJP-led government in Assam after it came to power this year.
“This industry will not only provide jobs to hundreds of unemployed local youths, but also contribute towards producing organic products. Simultaneously, farmers of the state will also benefit. It will be a non-polluting industry that will encourage plantation of medicinal herbs and plants,” said Sonowal, in the presence of Baba Ramdev and Union ministers Babul Surpriyo and Rajen Gohain.
The Patanjali Park, which is being set up in an area of 150 acres in the AIDC complex at Balipara, will manufacture a wide range of products including cosmetics and nutritional products, a government press release said. It said that the 6.57 lakh food park will create employment for over 4,000 people.
However, it was not immediately known whether the 150 acres of land was allotted by the Assam government free of cost or at a low premium.
