Industrial area plan: Bold move, old obstacle


NCP, bruised by graft allegations in award of irrigation projects, hopes to derive political mileage by projecting this as an anti-farmer move taking away farmers' land to give it to industry. Far from it. Companies that proposed SEZs acquired land through direct negotiations with sellers. In fact, the state's township policy allows firms to set up large real estate commercial and residential projects after denotification of their SEZs.

Chavan's move channelises land for industrial development and will help create jobs and win votes. If it is for political gains that NCP is opposing the move, then this belief can't be more misplaced.
