Mumbai: Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray MP Mr Sanjay Raut took a dig at Chief Minister Eknath Shinde saying that instead of getting investments from Davos he should bring back the projects that have gone to Gujarat.

Mr Raut was referring to the loss of $20 billion Vedanta Foxconn semiconductor project and Rs22,000 crore Tata Airbus defence manufacturing plane project to Gujarat. Further, the state also lost medical devices to Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh, the bulk drug project and the dedicated industrial cluster for renewable energy to other states.

“It would be a good thing if the CM could bring Rs5 lakh crore worth of investments from Davos from his two-day visit. But projects of Rs2.5 lakh crore have already gone out of Maharashtra and have gone to Gujarat. The CM should go to Gujarat first and get those back first,” said Mr Raut.

“We know how deals are made there, how MoUs are signed and who has made how many deals there so far. No one can prove how many investments and projects, in reality, came to the country. But we can see in front of our eyes that someone took away the project that came to Maharashtra. So, go to Gujarat instead of going to Davos,” Mr Raut said.
