• Sukhbir Badal lays foundation of Rs 600 crore ethanol refinery in Punjab

    With elections round the corner and the model code of conduct expected to be enforced soon, Punjab deputy CM and SAD president Sukhbir Badal and his Union minister wife, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, laid the foundation stone of a Rs 600-crore, seocnd-generation ethanol bio-refinery at Tarkhanwala village in Bathinda.

    The two SAD heavyweights conducted the state government even after Union minister of state for petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan could not make it to the event. Pradhan addressed the event through a video conference. To produce 100 kilo litres of ethanol every day, the plant will be using 400 metric tonnes of bio mass, including farm stubble.

    The SAD-BJP alliance turned the official function into a political rally, as BJP Bathinda district president Mohit Gupta, SAD’s Bathinda Rural candidate Amit Rattan, Sukhbir, and Harsimrat asked people to give another chance to the SAD-BJP tie-up, while speaking at the event. Harsimrat had on Saturday inaugurated a skill centre at Industrial Training Institute, Bathinda, and upgraded six government high schools to the senior secondary level. Marcus Foligno Jersey
