Nano project likely to shift to Gujarat

Gandhinagar, Oct. 4: The Nano project is likely to find a place at Sanghan village in Abdasa taluka of Kutch district and Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi is likely to make an announcement confirming this on October 7. Two other locations have also been offered to Mr Ratan Tata. This includes locations near Sanand near Ahmedabad and Halol in central Gujarat. However, sources said Kutch stood better chances of bagging the project. A General Motors project is already functional at Halol. A package of freebies has been offered to Tata to bring Nano to Gujarat.

Though officials refrained from making comments, sources in the Gujarat government claimed that it is almost certain that Nano will roll out of Gujarat. However an official announcement is likely only on October 7. Mr Modi, will be completing seven years in office as the chief minister and he will welcome Nano to Gujarat. Mr Modi is the only chief minister in Gujarat to complete seven years as a chief minister at a stretch.

Nano’s coming to Gujarat will further augment the industry-friendly and pro-development and progressive image of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.
