PM Modi in Gorakhpur, to inaugurate Yogi’s dream project of Fertilizer Plant

Gorakhpur

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Yogi Adityanth’s turf of Gorakhpur. PM will be taking part in the inauguration ceremony of the Fertiliser Plant that has been shut for nearly three decades.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is back in Uttar Pradesh today. He will be launching some big projects from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s turf of Gorakhpur. The PM is scheduled to take part in the inauguration ceremony of the Gorakhpur Fertiliser Plant that has been shut for nearly three long decades. The Prime Minister will also be inaugurating a 300- bed AIIMS facility and a regional medical research center with virus research and a testing lab. 

The fertilizer plant is set to be made with a budget of INR 8,600 Crores and is said to be the dream project of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The factory of the Fertilizer Corporation of India was shut down in 1990 and Yogi, as an MP of Gorakhpur has struggled to get the new factory started for 19 long years. Yogi is said to be closely attached to the project as he has been, on numerous occasions, raising the demand for the plant during his tenure as an MP from 1998 to 2017.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in 2016, laid the foundation for the fertilizer plant in Gorakhpur, and the plant is reported to have been completed in a record period of time with Yogi himself monitoring and overseeing the development. The responsibility of setting up the plant and operating it has been given to Hindustan Urvarak & Rasayan Limited (HURL). It is a part of the joint venture in which Coal India Limited, NTPC, Indian Oil Corporation are the lead promoters while Fertilizer Corporation of India and Hindustan Fertilizer Corporation are also partners. The plant will be producing neem-coated urea which aims to provide benefits to the farmers and it will also provide huge employment opportunities for the locals.

Yogi Adityanath, commenting on the inauguration of the plant said “The fertilizer plant will not only ensure the availability of adequate fertilizer to Uttar Pradesh and neighboring states but also reduce the dependence on imported urea.” The plant also comes as an effort to woo the voters of the Purvanchal region by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
