Dharmendra seeks CM’s intervention for LPG bottling plant

Bhubaneswar: Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has sought the cooperation of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for the proposed LPG bottling plant in the state.
In a letter to the Chief Minister, Pradhan sought his intervention to direct the concerned authorities to allot land to the IOCL for the LPG bottling project in Khordha.
“Odisha government is not supporting in land allocation for Khordha LPG bottling plant,” said Pradhan.
Shree Jagannath Temple Trust (SJTT) has offered IOCL a land of 32 acres on outright sale basis in March 2016 for constructing a new LPG bottling plant at Somnathpur village in Khordha district. Based on the demand letter by SJTT dated 16th March 2017, IOCL deposited the entire amount of Rs 28.8 crore on 30th March 2017.
The demarcation of the land was carried out in December 2017 by the SJTT authorities, and a copy of the same was handed over to IOCL, informed the Minister.
