Under the Punjab model to revive the state’s economy, Ludhiana would be one of the specific trade-based industrial clusters to be developed across the state, he said at a press conference here.

In these industrial hubs, local youths would be empowered with skills to make them job givers instead of job seekers, he said.

Like Ludhiana, Mohali would be developed as IT hub, Kapurthala and Batala as foundries cluster, Patiala as phulkari and food processing hub, Amritsar as medical and religious tourism hub, Malout and Muktsar as textile and farm equipment cluster.

Sidhu said that to stop manpower drain to abroad and generate congenial atmosphere for ease-of-doing business, impacting skills and giving interest-free loans to enable youth to come forward for startups would be pivotal point in the model.

He said to give an ideal atmosphere to industry, industrial units would be at liberty to purchase cheap power from anywhere in the country and PSPCL would be bound to transmit the power on charging some fee. An international arbitration centre to take up matters of industry would be set up here.

He said that while pointing fingers at others on sand mining, Bikram Majitha should introspect 10 years of Akali rule. “A person accused of drug trafficking cannot point fingers at others,” he said.

He said the list of 31 names would be released in a day or two. When asked about the rebellion in the party against him, he said he was not like Capt Amarinder Singh who threatened to take action against those who challenged him. He said those who were protesting would be mollified.
