1.54 lakh crore plant slipped from Maharashtra's hands

Politics has again heated up in Maharashtra. The issue is of a semiconductor plant to be set up at a cost of Rs 1.54 lakh crore. This plant is being set up in Gujarat instead of Maharashtra. Due to this, the opposition is questioning the Shinde government that the deal with Maharashtra was almost confirmed, so how did this plant go to Gujarat?
Expressing displeasure, NCP leader and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ajit Pawar said that this plant was snatched from Maharashtra under political pressure, and will have to be brought back. If this plant does not come to Maharashtra, it will be costly for the state's economic condition.
Indian industry conglomerate Vedanta and Taiwanese electronics company Foxconn will set up the country's first semiconductor plant in Gujarat with an investment of Rs 1.54 lakh crore. Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray said that the Aghadi government had pushed the project very strongly. The present government has lost the confidence of investors, so they are not coming here.
Maharashtra had offered Foxconn and Vedanta a discount of 39 thousand crores to bring the project to Talegaon, Pune, while Gujarat only 29 thousand crores. Gujarat is the only state to make a semiconductor policy. Budgetary provisions were also made.
