Maharashtra is the growth engine of India: Eknath Shinde

Mumbai, 25 February 2023: The growth of Maharashtra will lead to the growth of India, as Maharashtra is India’s growth engine, said Maharashtra Chief Minister, Eknath Shinde. Speaking at ABP Network’s second edition of the ‘Ideas of India’ summit on the topic of ‘Gateway of India – Reorienting the City by the Sea’, he said, “Maharashtra must and will contribute to the PM’s dream of five trillion dollars economy. Maharashtra has to work hard and achieve at least $1 trillion.”

In the session, Shinde discussed the measures taken by the Maharashtra government for the state's progression. “Maharashtra has a huge potential for industrial development. We have infrastructure, connectivity, land and quality manpower, despite of this people were not coming.” To in-build trust amongst industries, he said that “we went and told the industry that we will support them in every way.” That has created trust in the industry and in a few months we will “see industry coming in and this will generate employment.” The Chief Minister reiterated, “We have removed all hurdles of growth in the state to fast-track progress.”

On being asked about his relation with the centre, he explained, “We are getting enough support from the centre and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for development. We have even signed 137,000 crore MoUs.” The Chief Minister also announced that 5,000 km of access-controlled highways were being built to connect different cities with Maharashtra.

The summit promises an invigorating line-up of speakers with prominent figures from the world of business, politics, artists from the Hindi Film Industry, authors and other eminent sectors. The two-day conference confluences diverse ideas from various industries to promote India in becoming a burgeoning leader in the world.
