Praful admits UPA’s ‘failure’ in grounding mega projects
Admitting ‘failure’ of the UPA government in grounding several mega projects in a time-bound- manner, Union Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Praful Patel on Tuesday blamed it on the environmental ‘activism within the government’. ‘I must acknowledge that we in the government have not done enough to be able to clear suspicion or uncertainty over many projects which we could have resolved easily. However, we have not been able to resolve these issues,’ Patel said while speaking at a function. Identifying environmental clearance as the major hurdles before the major projects, he said completion of mega projects in India in a time-bound manner is an urgent need of hour to achieve the desired economic growth.
