Samant blames MVA govt

Mr Samant said the Tata Group had asked for the plot for the defence transport plane project in April 2020 but the previous MVA government never followed it up. "There was never any meeting that took place on the Tata Airbus project coming to Nagpur," he added.

The minister said that the MVA government did not do anything to get the Vedanta Foxconn project adding that the high power committee held on July 15, 2022, cleared a slew of incentives for the project. He clarified that the bulk drug project will come up in Raigad with an investment of Rs5,000 crore.

The minister also targeted Mr Thackeray over the mega refinery project which was to come at Nanar in Ratnagiri district was scrapped following opposition by Shiv Sena led by Uddhav Thackeray.
