He wrote, “Today, the notice of aborting the Mega Food park approved by the Central government in Greater Noida, the resolution to bring prosperity to the lives of the Holy Land of Krishna, was incomplete with the indifference of the government. Decided to shift the Patanjali project elsewhere”.
Balkrishna also claimed that the plan to open the food park is an initiative to improve the lives of the farmers in the region would not be successful after this decision.
If the project will start to run to its full capacity, it would generate goods of worth more than Rs 25,000 crore annually and thereby benefit 10,000 direct jobs.
