Two months ago, Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s loyalist Uday Samant, who is the state’s industries minister, had said that the Tata-Airbus aircraft manufacturing project will come up near Nagpur. On Thursday, the Modi government allotted the project to Gujarat.
Earlier, a joint venture semiconductor project of the Indian conglomerate Vedanta and Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn, proposed to be set up near Pune, was also awarded to Gujarat.
On Thursday, Aaditya Thackeray said, “Will Maharashtra government give answers to why these projects are going out? The Tata-Airbus is the fourth project which has gone from Maharashtra since the traitor government came to power in the state.”
Earlier, the Bulk Drug Park and the Medical Device Park projects were also allotted to Gujarat.
