BHOPAL: MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan pitched Indore as the next big IT destination in the country. At the opening session of the two-day Madhya Pradesh Global Investors Summit on Wednesday in Indore, CM Chauhan claimed that any desiring entrepreneur could avail land in the state within 24 hours.
“We have enough land for industries. Businesses can mark a location on a map, and we will allocate land within 24 hours… We built dams to capture water energy. Even the Delhi Metro runs on electricity generated by the Rewa solar power plant,”- Shivraj Singh Chauhan said. He further hailed the resources in the state claiming the industries would face no scarcity of water, electricity, and land.
