“The chief minister’s move is very much pro-industrialisation and investment-friendly,” said Sandipan Chakraborty, Chairman of the Confederation of Indian Industry.
“We cannot have one more Singur. The stalemate over Tata Motors’ plant is already sending a wrong message to the investors all over the world. We are often asked about the investment scenario in the state when we go abroad. So we can understand the condition. It is the time to act,” he added.
“After Tata Motors, we cannot afford Metro Cash & Carry to leave the state and lose the scope of huge employment,” added Chakraborty.
The same opinion is echoed by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
“There must be a political will that can work for the state by not politicising things. Any kind of difference can be sorted out through discussions,” said Sanjay Budhia, president, ICC.
“As far as the issue of using the discretion power is concerned, we support the chief minister . If he does not use his special powers during a crisis, then what is the use of the governance,” asked Budhia.
“We praise the CM’s move as it is investor-friendly. His decision will encourage the investors and attract more investment in the state. We are with the CM in every possible way. If this step had not been taken then the state might have lost all hopes of industrialisation in future,” said P R Agarwala, president, Bharat Chamber of Commerce (BCC).
