Ever since Vedanta Foxconn Semiconductor Project moved to Gujarat the state Yuva sena has aggressively held protests on September 15,2022 across Maharashtra against the decision. The project which has moved to Gujarat was pending in Maharashtra for its approval with the previous government for a very long time after which the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed with Gujarat.
“The democratic of Maharashtra is quite slow and even when comes to its work the previous government might have not taken action of this offer on time” said Member of Parliament Gopal Shetty
Opposition leaders are criticizing the government for sending the project to Gujarat and would be getting a higher amount of profit for it. Maharashtra Industries minister Uday Samant has stated that PM Modi has assured of another project and blamed the previous government of the state for the delay.
When it comes to assurance of the project Aam Aadmi party spokesperson Dhananjay Shinde said “ PM Modi and government has assured many things in the country but not able to fulfill in spite of that common people are through issues of inflation and Unemployment”.
“The Yuva Sena will be protesting as the state has lost huge employment opportunities after losing this project. Maharashtra will be going through the crisis of unemployment” said Anil Kokil, a Shiv Sena spokesperson to Afternoon Voice.
Sunil Tatkare spokesperson of NCP said that “Every state has its own responsibility and I being a part of Maharashtra can understand the unemployment situation in the state. As the state had already worked for this project and made its planning so it should be there in Maharashtra itself”.
Clyde Crasto Spokesperson of Nationalist Congress Party said “ Maha Vikas Aghadi government had worked on this project but after the changes of government in the states suddenly it decided to move the project to Gujarat and Industries Minister Uday Samant assuring on new project and gave the project to Gujarat could have earlier given to that state”
Vedanta Foxconn Project will be setting up its semiconductor and manufacturing unit in the coastal state. The chairman of the company Anil Agarwal Vedanta has signed the MOU with Gujarat to set up approximately Rs 1.54 crore semiconductor plant.
