Lucknow: After month- long return from his sabbatical, Congress president Rahul Gandhi will today address Amethi's cause in Parliament. He is expected to make interference on Amethi's Mega Food Park project that was put on hold by the Modi government in July 2014.
This Rs 200-crore project food park project was considered to bring huge investment in Uttar Pradesh and provide employment to around 40,000 youths in Amethi and its surrounding districts.
The NDA government, shortly after coming to power cancelled the permission to Shaktiman Food Park that was to be set up by Aditya Birla Nuvo Limited in Jagdishpur, Amethi — the parliamentary constituency of Rahul Gandhi.
The project was inaugurated by the Congress scion, Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla and former Union minister for food processing industries, Charan Das Mahant in October 2013.
