Electronic city may get Rs 50 cr from Centre

PANAJI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has assured full-fledged clearance as well as Rs 50-crore financial assistance for the electronic city coming up at Tuem in Pernem taluka.
He gave this assurance to Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar when the two met in New Delhi earlier this week. The Chief Minister told ‘The Navhind Times’ that he spoke to the Prime Minister for about 20 minutes, and the meeting resulted in acceptance of the invitation by the Prime Minister to lay foundation stones of three important projects of the state government. “The Prime Minister will arrive in Goa mostly during the last week of August 2016, and lay foundation stones for the Mopa international greenfield airport, super-specialty block at the Goa Medical College and Hospital, and the electronic city at Tuem,” he added.
“The Prime Minister told me that he is keenly supervising the progress of the Mopa airport project on the monthly basis,” Parsekar said. The state government has already received the in-principal approval of the central government for the proposed electronic city in Pernem taluka.
Parsekar said that he would write to the Centre in July for a full-fledged clearance.
“The Chief Minister has also assured that this particular clearance as well as Rs 50-crore financial assistance from the Centre for the electronic city would follow without any problem,” he added.
The meeting did not see discussion on the medium of instruction issue.
Modi, however, inquired about the present position of the Aam Aadmi Party in Goa, to which Parsekar replied that AAP is not a matter of concern for the state Bharatiya Janata Party.
