Chandigarh, July 13

State Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal today met Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilizers DV Sadananda Gowda and demanded that a national pharmaceutical park be built in Bathinda.

The Finance Minister told Gowda that Bathinda was the most suitable city for setting up of a pharmaceutical park, and a tranche of 1,350 acres was readily available for the venture. Earlier, the land was occupied by the erstwhile Bathinda Thermal plant.

The Finance Minister has requested Gowda to depute a team to visit the site.

“The proposed park in Bathinda could cater to the entire area north of Delhi, reaching out to Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, neighbouring Rajasthan, and even Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh,” said Manpreet Singh Badal.
